Jim, how interesting to see your info. about MURDER CREEK in Jasper County, Ga. I was raised about a mile from Murder Creek and always had lots of imaginations about what could have happened there to have been given that name. When I was quite small, there was a black panther that roamed that river area. In the night it would scream and sounded very much like a woman screaming. You can imagine the thoughts and fears of a small child upon hearing this from a place called "MURDER CREEK". My brother and uncle used to fish there. We lived in the Piedmont Community from abt. 1945 till 1956. I have cousins who still live in the area.
I am also researching my mother's family, PATRICK, who lived in Jasper County. Would appreciate any information anyone may have on them as well as the PERRY family.
