Charlie Lee Taunton Ola Mae Taunton
Story told by Carrie to family and was related to me by Ola Mae Taunton McQuinn who was raised by Carrie's second husband Joseph Thomas Taylor.
In 1915 Marion went fishing in the Chattahoochie River in Columbus, Ga. He came back ant left his boat tied to a tree on the bank, Carried the fish to the house about a block away. While gone his was stolen by some men. He jumped in the river and swam across got his boat and was crossing the river when someone shot at him he fell in the river and drowned. This happened early 1915 before Ola Mae was bn, she was bn the month after he died.

If you type in her name in the box at the top left of this page you can see everything she has posted. in one of the post's she has the link to her site.
