W.C. RONEY TRUCKING CO., Inc.  Burlington, NC

William Chesley Roney,Sr. (b. 1908- d. 1988) started his moving 
and trucking bussiness in the 1930s while part time working his Ice 
Cream sales in a truck, on three wheel bike or a Cushmans motor 
scooter. During world war II he did part time work on loading dock at 
Associated Transport and also work in dye house at Burlington 
Industries, Pioneer plant.  He was a moving company agent for several 
large firms serving Burlington, NC and Alamance county area for many 
years handling statewide service with a small storage warehouse, 
first rented from John Long then later with Mr. Zimmerman on Park 
Ave. and Lakeside st. of Burlington.  Mr. Nolen Wooten and sons were 
a customer who had rented part of a warehouse there during the 1970s
-80s, they were a great family business to know and work with. After 
my older brother Gary finish high school he took over most of the 
driving then as Pop had serious eye trouble, they both did many a 
moving job both local and statewide. I was helping with work when big 
enough, just as my other brothers had before me and I begun full time 
working about 1974 or 1975.  Pop had health problems which along with natural ageing and a life 
time of hard work, had slowly weak him and finely took him from us 
one night in July of 1988. He was married to my Mom (Mary McPherson) 
for over fiftyfour years and had four sons that they raised, one 
infant son (W.C. Roney, Jr.) died in 1943, He was the son of Clyde 
Ruffin Roney and Bernice Boone Roney of Burlington, NC.   (F.A. Roney 2009)

Picture by kennesaw kid, kennesaw, Ga.(6/4/09) alt by FAR2009. Office, shop and loading docks.

Back in 1987-88, I had work for Brown Transport Corp. out of greensboro, NC driving over the road                                              mostly east of the Mississippi River, as far north to Providence, RI (the first trip I went to for Brown, as a team with Ed Lewis, a former Thurston driver), across to Chicago,IL then to Nashville,Tn and by Charlotte,NC to return at home terminal in Greensboro,NC. On later trips I made was like Columbus,OH and Edison,NJ or Farmingdale,NY. Many a truckload run with                                   tobacco products, local manufacture fabric goods or less than truckload shipments items for any of the many eastern U.S. terminals of Brown or former Thurston Trucking, Co. . Sometimes I left the
 home terminal driving a local daycabover roadtractor unit driving all the way to St.Paul,Mn and St.Louis,MO., many of the roads were like washboards to drive on like down east to Flordia, and back (in Ft.  Pierce, where Mr. Brown had retired to.) and out west, as far as Dallas, Texas.   
(Fred Roney)-Burlington,NC(7/29/2009)   

The 4 columns came from a plantation house in Milledgeville, GA
that was built in 1858 and survived Sherman's march to the sea....
Mr. Claude Brown bought them when they were taking the house
down and shipped them to Milton Avenue in Atlanta for his new home
 terminal beiong built in Atlanta, Ga. early 1980s. Brownie the elf
was designed by Mrs. Brown a (Great Southern lady by the way) back
in the late 50"s. It was to show the company's service as that of the
shoemaker and the elves. (kennesaw kid)- kennesaw, Ga. (6/4/09)
