Re: Murdered cousin

In Reply to: Murdered cousin by charles temple of 761

I found the article, written Jan 25, 1976 - there is a picture of the grave marker. The marker reads:

C.M. Pryor, husband of Emma Price
May 27, 1894 - June 29, 1917
Killed by one whose name is
not worthy of mention

Tolbert goes on to say that he spoke with a relative of C.M. Pryor who told him the murdered man was a young farmer. He says she told him more details, but "there is no point in repeating details of a 1917 tragedy". He also said that the marker was somewhat hard to read, but the artist Frank McGrath "touched it up". It looks like black paint or Marks-a-Lot or something was used to make it easier to read, probably long gone by now.
