Ronnie was a loyal Southerner who was a friend to all who broke bread with the Plough Boys.  He would always greet you with smile and a few jokes or stories.  He will truly be missed.

Ronnie was the son of the late Roy and Annie Dale James Horne.  In addition to
his  parents he was predeceased by a sister, Betty Joe Sparks and
brothers, William “Bill” Horne and David Horne.  He was Supervisor of

sisters, Delores Tyler of Eastover and Judy Horne of Salemburg; and 2
grandchildren, Donnie Locklear and Danielle Locklear.  Also surviving is

Ploughboy Christmas Party fitting end to 2013

The Ploughboys ended 2013 with a festive get together.  76 were in attendance to celebrate the Christmas Season and to gather together and swap tales.   Floyd Starling and Richard Horne prepared a fine feast that included ribeye steak, baked potatoes, salad, and desert.

2013 Chrismas Party

2013 Chrismas Party

2013 got off to a great start with a bang as the Edenton Bell Battery shot the cannon in January at David Vinson’s house.  2013 accomplishments included the formation of the camp store, a successful vidalia onion sale, two store outings in Stedman and one each in Rocky Mount, Campbelton, and Murfreesboro.  Many confederate graves were recorded and the website had many soldier pages added.  The membership at the end of the year was 45, along with 2 associates.

May 2014 be even more productive.
