family history

August Willis

Heard this story for the first time on Easter at my grandmother's
house, this was her grandmother's brother. They never did figure
out who shot him, and he was found dragged off the road, with his
money and watch and other jewelry intact. Crazy.

(Oh also, there was a Batt in politics here way back then, too.)

Wow, an amazing story. And so close to home for you. I know it was a long time ago, but it's these things which keeps us in tact with who we are and where we've been. This was a very sad situation. My offerings to your family.

Thank you...

It's not something that really bothers us anymore, really, it's more of an old yarn at this point, but a very interesting one.
