Updated the Murder and Mayhem page and included some articles on the conviction of three Kemper County men that were brutalized into false confessions. This resulted in the Brown v. Mississipppi ruling in 1936. A young law student is reseaching this case and has asked if any family members would want to share their parents and family experiences of living with racial strife in Kemper County during those times.
I added photos submitted by Shani L and Emonnie (descendants of Jane Johnson through her eldest daughter Mary Turner who married Walter Perryman. Walter is the brother of Carline Johnson's husband William). The photos appear in the Jane Johnson Turner gallery.
