Hallie Beavers ~ Teacher and Adventurer

31 Mar 2024 6:01 PM | Anonymous


Milli Hammer tells the story of her aunt, Hallie Beavers Allred, who was born in 1893 to an interesting and unusual Siler City family, and who went on to lead an unusually adventuresome life for a woman of her time.

Hallie was an accomplished pianist and athlete. She played field hockey during her four years of college. She was secretary of her sophomore class and treasurer of the Young Women’s Christian Association. Hallie was a teacher in Siler City and in the Panama Canal Zone. Later in life, she married Jesse Allred and had a rich family life.

Read Hallie's story here:

You may remember Hallie's mother--Mattie Rogers Beavers--who was a rural mail carrier in Chatham. If you missed her story, there's a link at the bottom of Hallie's.

Thanks to Milli Hammer for sharing the stories of both of these remarkable Chatham County women!
