and she can tell you details about the article. Including: " Whitmore Crews..a Successionist, was at the hanging.. In a few days a committee of deserters were waiting on him. One man ..said "Now Mr Crews you have hung old man Myers and I think you had better carry over a load of corn to the widow and if you don't mind, you can throw a side of bacon on top of it." He sent it out the next day.
A lot of things had been happening in the area, good men killed and wounded that led up to the hangings. Let's face it, it was a terrible time for all.
