Education, 18 May 1922, Buie's Creek, Harnett Co, NC. 98 She attended Buie's Creek Academy (now Campbell University) in Buie's Creek, Harnett County (NE of Fayetteville, halfway to Raleigh). On 18 May 1922 she earned a certificate for completing the full course of studies in the English and Math Departments.

Occupation: Teacher, 1926, White Oak, Bladen Co, NC. Virginia Gladys Haywood taught at White Oak for a few months early in the year. She did not have a teaching certificate at that time. (from her claimed teaching record as submitted to Teachers' and State Employees' Retirement System in May 1968)

Occupation: Teacher, from 1926 to 1927, Saxapahaw, Alamance Co, NC. Gladys taught in Saxapahaw for the 1926-27 school year. (from her claimed teaching record as submitted to Teachers' and State Employees' Retirement System in May 1968)

Residence, 29 Aug 1927, Fayetteville, Cumberland Co, NC. 1357,5187

Occupation: Teacher at Glenhope, from 1927 to 1929, Burlington, Alamance Co, NC. Gladys taught at Glenhope for 2 school years, from 1927 to 1929. (from her claimed teaching record as submitted to Teachers' and State Employees' Retirement System in May 1968)

Property: Sold lot 11 on Tarleton Ave in Central Heights, 1 Dec 1927, Burlington Twp, Alamance Co, NC. 5555 Charles and Gladys sold Lot 11 on Tarleton Avenue back to Mebane Real Estate & Trust Company. This undeveloped property had been purchased by Charles on 15 June 1926 from the same company.

[This sale is shortly after Charles and Gladys are married, and they have just purchased other property in Burlington, so this is probably Charles selling the place where he lived or planned to live before they got married. With the short time period that they owned the property, it is likely that they never lived there.]

Property: Bought lots 30-35 on Beaumont Ave in Piedmont Estates, 1 Dec 1927, Burlington Twp, Alamance Co, NC. 5196,5556,5559 Mebane Real Estate and Trust Co of Burlington sold to Chas. C. Lindley, lots 30-35 in Block B of Piedmont Estates, Burlington Twp. This is 6 lots forming an area the shape of a quarter of a pie, with the curved edge on Beaumont Avenue. The land is 150 ft deep, with 210 feet on the street. The back corner of the wedge is on an alley. Registered 9 Dec 1927.

Chas C. Lindley and wife Gladys Lindley obtain a mortgage for $1200 on Lots 32-35 from Central Loan and Trust Company, with final payment due 1 Dec 1931.

Piedmont Estates is shown in Alamance Co plat book 2, p43. The plat, dated Nov 1924, shows Beaumont Avenue running north from Piedmont Way, crossing Glen Alpine Road, then curving northwest to cross Pine Avenue. It also shows Piedmont Park on the east side of Beaumont Avenue across from where the Lindley property is located. A closeup view of the area is shown in Plat book 2, page 23.

[Robert H. Lindley, who lived in the home there as a child, says that the plat does not reflect the way the land was actually developed. Beaumont Avenue did not curve, but instead went straight. He does not remember a park across the street. This is confirmed by a modern map of the area. This area is today (2021) at the corner of S. Beaumont Ave and Rainey Street, which is to the east of downtown Burlington, just south of Church Street. There is no remnant of the curve or the park.]

[This is the first purchase of land on Beaumont Ave that the Lindleys make. They later purchase additional bordering lots, and they are living there in 1930 census.]

Property: Sold lot 5 in Beverly Hills, 22 May 1928, Burlington Twp, Alamance Co, NC. 5546 C. C. Lindley and wife Gladys H. Lindley convey Lot 5 in Block J, Section 1 of Beverly Hills to D. R. Fonville and C. C. Fonville. Registered 11 June 1928.

[On 22 Nov 1927, Charles and Gladys had purchased this from the Fonvilles. Note that also on 22 May, C. C. and Gladys purchase a different lot in Beverly Hills, so they might just be doing some kind of swap of one lot for another.]

Property: Bought lot 34 in Beverly Hills, 22 May 1928, Burlington Twp, Alamance Co, NC. 5561,5562 C. C. Lindley and wife Gladys H. Lindley buy Lot 34, Block F, Section 1 of Beverly Hills from D. R. Fonville and wife Anne W. Fonville and C. C. Fonville. One of the covenants of the deed says "... the premises shall not be occupied by negroes or persons of negro blood." Later in the deed there are other covenants, such as no pigs, no commercial buildings, and those covenants all have an expiration date of 1 Jan 1953, but the covenant about negroes is specifically excluded from expiring.

They obtain a mortgage on this property for $666.66, with repayment due by Nov 22 1930.

[According to the plat this lot is on the north side of Highland Street, just north of the intersection with Sellars Street. This is a residential area just east of downtown Burlington.

Note that on this same date C.C. and Gladys convey to the Fonvilles a different lot in Beverly Hills, so this looks like a land swap.

The Lindleys already own a block of land on Beaumont Ave, and continue to live there, so it is not clear why they are also purchasing land in the Beverly Hills development.

Charles and Gladys default on the mortgage for this property in 1931, and the property is put up for sale at auction.]

[This may be the outside of the original intended curve of Beaumont Ave that no longer curves, so that Charles and Gladys are buying that addiional land that mades their property more rectangular.]

Occupation: Teacher at Glenhope, from 1931 to 1932, Burlington, Alamance Co, NC. Gladys taught at Glenhope for the school year from 1931 to 1932. (from her claimed teaching record as submitted to Teachers' and State Employees' Retirement System in May 1968)

Property: Bought land on Hwy 93, 29 Feb 1936, Alamance Co, NC. 5568,5569 Addie Louise Johnston (single) and Margaret Johnston (single) sold to C. C. Lindley and wife Gladys H.

They took out a mortgage on the land on 3 March 1936 for $281.25, due 3 November 1937.

[This is land that was about 4 miles north of the area where Charles' father and siblings lived. Robert H. Lindley says they lost it in the depression.]

Hico Land is shown on Alamance Co Plat book 3, p94. It is a very messy drawing, and the area where Lot 38 is located is very difficult to read. Lot 1 appears with 250 feet of frontage on a road, about 415 deep back to a stream.

Property: Easement deed to Duke Power, 26 May 1936, Alamance Co, NC. 5545 C. C.

[This is the Hico land that was purchased 26 Feb 1936. I don't have any more records on this land.]

Story: Quoted in Herb Article, 3 Jun 1978, Chapel Hill, Orange Co, NC. 5589 Gladys was quoted in a newspaper article about care for herbs. She was speaking as one of the volunteers at the N. C. Botanical Gardens at the University of North Carolina.

...
A soil mixture for cuttings should consist of one-third part purlite, one-third part peat moss and one-third part sand. Cuttings may also be rooted in sand alone, said Mrs. Gladys Lindley.
"Always handle herbs by their leaves when transplanting or cutting them," Mrs. Lindley said. "Their limbs and stems are very tender. If a leaf is bruised, it won't hurt the plant, but bruised stems could cause poor luck in transplanting."
For persons ambitious enough to start herbs from seeds, Mrs. Lindley recomends the use of a mixture of one-half peat moss and one-half sand with a little purlite.
"Don't cover the seeds deeply," Mrs. Lindley said. "One-eighth of an inch of soil is fine for small seeds."

Property: Land exchange with Chapel Hill Land Corporation, 14 Nov 1978, Chatham Co, NC. 5051,5052,5053,5054 A set of documents record an exchange of land between Charles Clinton Lindley Jr. and Gladys H. Lindley on one part, and Chapel Hill Land Corporation on the other part. The Lindleys give the Corporation 5.9 acres, as shown on Plat book 24 page 65. This includes a triangular area that borders the 3.44 acre triangle that Clint sold previously, and a 60 foot strip of land along the remaining about 10 acres of land that Clint still owns from his 20-acre gift. In return, Clint receives 3 acres, as shown on Plat book 24 page 64, and also a permanent easement of ingress and egress over the strip of land 60 feet wide which now lies just to the east of his Woodlin-adjacent property. The 3 acre tract that Clint acquired contains a house that Clint will eventually move into. The entire property acquired by the Corporation is 14.568 acres, which includes land from King as well. This is the land that will eventually contain part of the entrance to Briar Chapel.

There are a set of restricted covenants associated with all the property which prevent mobile or modular homes from being placed on any of the property, and prevent any houses from being positioned so that the rear faces the proposed street in a 60 foot wide strip of the land.

Story: Inducted into Golden Key Club, 6 Oct 1979, Buie's Creek, Harnett Co, NC. Gladys was inducted into the senior alumni organization at Campbell University at Buies Creek at a special recognition during Homecoming.

Clinton Lindley, but retained rights to use the main house and one acre of land around the house for her lifetime.

Obituary, 1 Jan 2004, Chatham Co, Province of North Carolina. 5032 Gladys Haywood Lindley, 101, died Wednesday (12-24-03) at Glenaire Retirement Community, Cary, N.C. Mrs. Lindley was a native of Cumberland County. She was a retired teacher, having taught for many years in Bonlee and Pittsboro schools. She was a member of University Presbyterian Church in Chapel Hill. After her retirement from teaching, she was active in the Chapel Hill Garden Club, the Herb Volunteers of the North Carolina Botanical Garden, and Lystra Homemakers Club. She was preceeded in death by her husband, C. C. Lindley, and son, Charles Clinton Lindley, Jr. She is survived by her son, Robert Lindley; his wife, Shirley; three grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
A family service will be held at Moore's Chapel Cemetery in Saxapahaw at a later date. Memorials may be made to Glenaire Foundation, 4000 Glenaire Circle, Cary, N.C. 27511.

Religion: Baptist, then Presbyterian.

Story. Gladys began first grade at a private school. However, during that year she became sick (maybe typhoid fever, then pneumonia) and missed so much time that she did not move into second grade. Instead, the next year she attended "half second grade" in the public school system. (recollections of Gladys Haywood Lindley)

Story. After she graduated from high school, she spent a year working as a cashier at Fleishman's store in Fayetteville. It was a men's clothing store and dry goods. She then spent one semester at a business school in Richmond, VA, mainly because her father wanted her to study business, but she did not like it. This school was the same one that her sister Aline was attending. After that, she spent 2 years at Woman's College in Greensboro, studying General Studies. She stopped because the family cotton crop failed. Oscar and Lella sold property (the land Lenward Hair's house is on) to cover the crop fertilizer costs, but she had to stop attending school. She worked in her Uncle Lon's office at the Registrar of Deeds, and was there when the school superintendant came to see Lon looking for someone to teach 6th Grade at White Oak school at Cedar Creek. Lon suggested that he hire Gladys, since he knew she had always been interested in teaching (but she had no training). She taught one semester at White Oak. When she went back to Woman's College, she signed up for Teacher Training (writing a check on her father's account without his permission). She was there when she met Charles. (recollections of Gladys Haywood Lindley)

Story. When asked about her early memories of airplanes, she said that she did not remember the first time she saw an airplane in flight, but remembers seeing men trying to fly in early Wright-brothers-like "boxy" airplanes at the beaches of North Carolina. She also remembers the excitement of Haley's Comet, when each night they would look to see whether the comet was higher or lower in the sky. She did not remember any special concerns about the turn of the century (like the concerns about 2000), but she says that people have been expecting the end of the world as long as she can remember. (discussion with Les Lindley)

Story. Gladys met Charles when he and Ed Mann went to interview her roommate at Woman's College for a teaching position at Saxapahaw. Gladys entertained them while waiting for her roommate to return. They later hired her instead of the roommate. She left school to take the job at Saxapahaw, and did not get her Class A teaching certificate until June 1958, when she completed her degree at Appalachian State College at Boone, NC. She taught at Saxapahaw for a year, married Charles the following summer, then they went to Glen Hope (Burlington). She taught at a lot of schools, mainly as substitute or part-time. She taught at Altamahaw Ossipee and several schools in Burlington, including Maple Avenue. She started teaching full time when the family moved to Bonlee, and continued when they moved to Woodlin. She also attended summer school at Chapel Hill. She continued teaching until she turned 65 in 1967. (recollections of Gladys Haywood Lindley)

Story: Buies Creek Academy: Buie's Creek, Harnett Co, NC. Campbell University was founded as Buies Creek Academy on January 5, 1887, by James Archibald Campbell, a North Carolina preacher who believed that no student should be denied admission because of lack of funds. In 1926, the school attained junior college status and changed its name from Buies Creek Academy to Campbell Junior College. In 1961, Campbell became a senior college. The name was changed to Campbell University on June 6, 1979.

Story. She stopped teaching for a while while she raised her children. She ran the lunchroom at Glenhope School while Charles was principal there.
She taught at Bonlee until Charles retired in 1950. During this time they had been building Woodlin in preparation for retirement. In 1950 they moved and she began teaching first grade in Pittsboro. She continued to teach there until she retired in 1967.
At the age of 90 she sold her car and she made her own arrangements to go to Glenaire Retirement Community. Even there she continued her activities with wildflowers, both wild and cultivated. She was known for her orchids, which she raised in Glenaire's greenhouse and placed in the public spaces there when in bloom, and for a wildflower path that she established in a wooded area whe could see from her apartment window.
After she moved to Glenaire she continued to show her independence by making her own after death arrangements.
She loved children and influenced a lot of lives. Bob and Shirley met many people who recognize the name Lindley and tell them that she was responsible for their staying in school. One former student said that she sat on Mrs. Lindley's lap the first several days of school -- that was the only way she would stay. (Recollections of Bob Lindley)

Story: Corn Cob Spanking. "I spent many happy days at my grandparents [William Henry and Sophia Downing] home. However I was the only grandchild that my grandmother ever spanked. I do not remember the incident but she told me about it. Grandpa grew much corn so corn cobs were brought to the house in a big basket to burn in the kitchen stove. It must have been fun to throw them into the yard for that was what I was determined to do. Grandma said to me "If you throw any more cobs I will have to spank you." I continued to throw the cobs so my truthful grandmother had to spank me. She said she never threatened to punish another of her 34 grandchildren." (written recollections by Gladys Haywood Lindley)

Story. 98 Charles called Gladys "bunny" because her nose went in and out when she breathed.
