    • “The 1912 Sanborn Hap shows a one-story house on this site, but in 1917 the present house was depicted on the map.
    • “Until at least 1930 it was the residence of Cary L. and Lettie Carroll. He was a bookkeeper for Crawford Plumbing and Hill Supply.” Cary (1880-1959) also worked at various times as chief clerk for Union Guano Company, a fertilizer firm, and in real estate. He was one of 11 children, all of whom reached adulthood.
    • After Lettie’s death in 1931 at age 50 (Letitia Brown Lemy-Carroll, 1880-1931), he appears to have moved to Stokes County, where by 1936 he was serving on the Stokes County Board of Elections. He lived in King and later Mountain View. He didn’t sell the house until 1943.
    • “In 1943 the Carrolls sold the house to Harter H. and Blanche G. Trivette, and their family occupied it until 1975.” Presumably, the sellers were Cary and his second wife, Naomi King Carroll, 1913-1986. Naomi was 33 years younger than Cary and six years younger than his daughter.

  • Jane Gilkeson Wilson (1889-1979) bought the house out of foreclosure in 1930.

Lawrence was a salesman for Greensboro Motor Car Company, which sold Buick cars, GMC trucks and Frigidaire appliances.
  • Jane sold the house in 1963. Curiously, on the 1930 deed, Jane was identified as “Jane G. Wilson” with no indication of her marital status; on the 1963 deed, she was “Mrs. L.W. (Jane Gilkeson) Wilson, Widow.”

However, Sanborn maps indicate that it had been erected by 1925.
    • “The first known owner was Clement Smith and his family. Clem Smith worked at the Elkin Shoe Company, which was owned by his brother, Alexander M. Smith.
    • “After Smith moved from Elkin in 1927, William Avery Neaves purchased the house, moving from his earlier home at 289 North Bridge Street.

    • The property includes an in-ground swimming pool.
    • The Greek Revival house has been on the study list for the National Register since 1986.
    • From the valuable The Historic Architecture of Davie County, North Carolina: “In the county’s oldest brick buildings the highly decorative Flemish bond was used, sometimes only on two elevations. Flemish bond is characterized by the pattern of alternating headers and stretchers in the brickwork. … The latest use of this type of brickwork is in the Sheek-Kimbrough house in Smith Grove, built about 1852 …
    • “The Sheek-Kimbrough House is typical of Greek Revival style dwellings erected in Davie County during the 1850s. Its symmetrically arranged front (north) elevation is focused on the central entrance which is framed by wide sidelights. A gable-roofed porch with square posts formerly shielded this entrance.
    • “The house’s four walls are laid up in Flemish bond, the only surviving Greek Revival style structure in the county which exhibits such extensive use of this bond type. The ell originally had a porch but this was enclosed and brick veneered; the veneer was also unfortunately applied to the remainder of the brick ell.
    • “Inside, the dwelling displays a variety of symmetrically molded surrounds and two-panel doors. There is frequent use of a ceiling molding which is, in fact, a molded surround more typically found framing doors and windows. A mantel in the parlor is a fancifully decorated feature containing molded pilasters with corner blocks and a carved frieze.”
    • The house apparently was built by Albert Sheek (1825-1873), who at various times worked as a carpenter, machinist, postmaster and grist mill operator.
    • “This dwelling, which is thought to have been built in 1852, was long occupied by Dr. Marmaduke Kimbrough. Sheek had purchased a four-acre lot from his father in 1852 for $16. He sold it in 1858 to W.B. Brock for $1,050.00, a sum which surely implies that the house had been constructed.”
    • In 1870 Brock gave the house to his daughter Sarah E. Brock Kimbrough (1843-1931) and her husband, Dr. Maramaduke D. Kimbrough (1838-1910). They owned the house until their deaths.
    • Dr. Kimbrough was a physician. He was educated at Union Academy in Davie County and East Bend Academy in Yadkin County. He studied medicine under a local doctor and then at the University of Pennsylvania, graduating in 1860. After serving as a surgeon in the Civil War, he practiced in Smith Grove until a few months before his death at age 72 and opened a drug store in Mocksville.
    • He and Sarah had nine children over a period of 28 years, all of whom reached adulthood and all but one of whom lived at least into their sixties.
    • Their daughter Rena (1871-1947) married Albert Sheek’s nephew James L. Sheek (1866-1931).
