You know I wouldnt normally respond to these types of messages but find myself compelled to say somthing about this! I am sorry that this happened to your father. But times back then were tough and very much different then they are now! The town is not to Blame for what happen to your father! And I am not sure if you would have gotton the full story of fact anyways! When people have hard times they sure don't like to make it very public of exactly what really happened! I am not from this area but genealogy is a wonderul learning tool for discovering your family and I think these kind of posting arent really needed!
