Seventies: Old and new.. lol

vkn: ahhhhhhh preparing for family reunion ?

Seventies: Never met these before. Grandnieces and nephews of my great grandfather, Will Washington

vkn: I see

Seventies: I'm trying to get more of the family on board. I think that they will enjoy attending on Ben's Corner. Its the land that Scott used to own before he was murdered.

vkn: oops not aware of murder Was murderer brought to justice

Seventies: He was killed in a land dispute with his son-in-law and its looking like his family as well. Not sure if the case was settled. I don't think that it was though. One of the cases I want to resolve when I go to Mississippi this summer.

vkn: Gee hope you can get the court case and details. I think Khathu was able to get all the details of the murder in his family but not sure

Seventies: He was. I already have a piece of the puzzle, the original land plat map for the property. The owners just before him were siblings who got into a lawsuit over the property.

vkn: wow the records must have many historical details. Has the family resolved the split or does it continue?

Seventies: The land was sold to Scott and Eliza to resolve

vkn: ahhhhhhh

Seventies: I need to get additional court records...looking forward to getting this information. Already have the deeds from 1900 and 1924
