From the Statesville, North Carolina newspaper
Dateline – Tuesday, 8 October 1907
Now, I’ve heard it said that my daddy was “wild” in his youth,
but I’ve got witnesses that prove that the above happened
11 years before he was even born!
I have confirmed that there was an Albert H. Myers, age 39,
living 8 miles from Thomasville, in Conrad Hill, NC, in 1907.
Living in the home was
a daughter Emma Pearl Myers, age 14.
She would marry John William Lee at age 15,
and they would have their first child a year later.
I am happy to report that Albert H. Myers
lived another 26 years after the stabbing,
passing away at the age of 65.
STOP THE PRESSES !!
This just in…
No further word on the ultimate fate
of this not-so-lamented, unrelated to me (I’m pretty sure)
