However, remote Ocracoke Island was not permanently settled until 1750, being a pirate haven at times before then. Fort Ocracoke, a Confederate States of America fortification constructed at the beginning of the American Civil War, was situated on Beacon Island in Ocracoke Inlet, two miles to the west-southwest of Ocracoke village. A small village on Hatteras Island is said to have had forty fighting men. By the late 19th century, the shipping business was gone, and the United States Lifesaving Service became a major source of steady income for local men. He was killed in November 1718 in battle in Teach's Hole, a channel slightly west of the present location of Ocracoke village.
