My GGreat Grandparents are Louis A. Watkins & Lillie Missouri Chadwick. I have read records of State vs Roderick that he was sentenced to death for the death of Laura. Nowhere have I been able to find anything else. Thought you may have heard.
There is a Emanuel Roderick, Jr. (1891-1955)buried in Green
lawn Cemetery. Surely this would not be him.
I am Granddaughter of Carrie Mae Hines.
