Surnames and Family Research Forum
Roosevelt Townes and Robert McDaniels, two black men, were lynched on April 13, 1937, in Duck Hill, Mississippi, by a white mob. Would appreciate it if someone with good eyes could see if you can find his family so a wider search can be conducted. Believe that he may be a relative, even though "Townes" did not usually have the "s". My Townes were mainly in Yalobusha and Grenada Counties but sure they spreaded out to the next counties. Thank you.
