Meet “Dirty Ankle”, North Carolinians..and special thanks to David Ledford who took the time to share this with us.
“Hello my name is David Ledford from the little community as I know as Dirty Ankle, NC. This community is located at the foot of Carpenter Knob. This knob is located in North Eastern Cleveland County, NC. The knob is five miles North of Belwood, NC and two miles North Northeast of Toulca, NC. The elevation of this knob is 1592 feet. Carpenter Knob is best known for Knobby sightings, which is a bigfoot or sasquatch. The first sighting of this so called Knobby was in 1978 to 1979 era. They have been a more recent sightings of this Knobby in 2010 and these stories can be easily found on YouTube. I have been unsuccessful to find out where Carpenter Knob got it’s name. I have found out that they were some family members related to Carpenter’s that lived on the knob back in the early 1800’s. I hope you have enjoyed this little history on Carpenter Knob.
