black sheriff from Tennessee shoots inmate?
asking for assistance: I have a family story that I wish to find out if it is true.. that my 3rd great grandfather was a deputy sheriff of covington, tennessee from 1881-1886 until he shot a white inmate. I would have thought it would have been easy to find something like this but is a challenge lol. Any ideas on where I should look?? His name is Charley (Charlie) Flowers. Likely Born in October of 1863, death unknown. Parents are Anthony and Sarah Flowers of Tenn. Thank u in advance.
