Insurance Atlantic Mutual Fire & Marine Insurance Company; Carolina City, NC (1859 - <1865)
The Atlantic Mutual Fire and Marine Insurance Company was established by legislative charter in 1859, apparently becoming operational in Spring 1859.  The legislation authorized the company at Elizabeth City, but the first advertisements listed Carolina City (near Morehead) as its location.


   The company began advertising on April 4, 1859, for insurance on "buildings, merchandise, furniture, mills, manufactories, ships and their cargo, and most kinds of property." The company was listed at Carolina City, NC.
   Applications for insurance could be made to the company's officer or to its authorized agents, but we haven't uncovered any list of agents so far.
   The Civil War and the occupation of New Bern by Union forces relatively early in the war probably prevented this insurer from transacting much business.
