Subject: [TNMARION] Historical Trial
Date: Fri, 9 May 2008 13:29:40 -0500
Marilyn Garner was sent the following info by a Melungeon researcher. I find
it fascinating in several respects. If you have researched Marion & Hamilton
counties you will recognize some of the witnesses names and read their
testimony about where they lived at various times, relationships, etc.
This is the link to the website:
The info that was sent to Marilyn (the trial transcript) is the last link on
the page "Notes/Shepherd Trial"
I would suggest reading the info at the link "Lewis Shepherd ("Romance of
the Melungeons')" first so that you will better understand what the trial is
