thank you. i did find my great-great grandparents grave a bout a year ago with the help of a local gentleman, Mr. Kidd. he met with me and my sister and showed us around the cemetery and the church.
which shooting are you referring to?
since you are local, can you tell me about my great aunt, SaraH Bales, who was murdered, supposedly by a Mr. Suiter.
my late aunt, Frances Bales Stowers, said she believed it was behind her house which i believe was the Stowers homeplace (behind Tommy's house) up on the hill. appreciate any local info you can give me.
