be willing to go to the Gen. Society(or paper) and look for a article(any other information) that would concern a Austin Hale and Bentley Orr. A small article appeared in the Douglas County Hearld Nov. 26, 2009
75 Years Ago Dec. 13, 1934
"Austin Hale and Bentley Orr, youths of east of Ava, pleaded guilty in a special term of circuit court to charges of stealing chickens in the night time, and were sentenced to two years each in the state penitentiary". Bentley Orr is my Dad, Austin Hale my first cousin. My Dad died at a early age and we never got to know him. This brings him to life for me and my brothers and sisters. We know the story behind the "chicken stealing" but would like any other articles. Time frame probaly Nov. 1934 to Dec.1934.
Thanks in advance,
