The Huguenots were the Protestants of France during the 16th and 17th centuries. As such, they came into religious and political conflict with the Roman Catholics. Their fortunes waxed and waned until the reign of King Louis XIV. This monarch persecuted them mercilessly. On August 18, 1685, Louis revoked the Edict of Nantes—a covenant that had guaranteed the Huguenots certain religious and political rights. Finding life intolerable under his persecution and denial of religious freedom, hundreds of thousands fled to other countries, including the English colonies of America. "Whatever may have been the temper which the Huguenots displayed when they were driven from France by persecution, they certainly carried with them something more valuable than rage. They carried with them virtue, piety, industry and valour, which proved the source of wealth, spirit, freedom, and character in all those countries—Holland, Prussia, England, and America—in which the noble exiles took refuge" . Aunt Jane Mizell (b. 1826) used to te tell her nieces and nephews stories that prove that the French ancestors of the Mizells were zealous Huguenots ( personal letter from A.C. Mizell to E.V. Smith). She said that her grandmother told how their ancestors had had false bottoms in their chairs so they could hide their Bibles and songbooks when the premises were searched by inquisitors. One descendant wrote that the French ancestors spelled their name Moselle, the same as the river in whose valley they lived. A.C. Mizell wrote, "I note they say that the Mizells spelled their name Mozelle when they came over but I don't think so. I know that Pa said our people came from Alsace-Lorraine on the Moselle River, and that our name way back yonder was Moselle, but long before we left France". His chance statement that "according to tradition our ancestors were woolen mill workers" suggests that they belonged to the militant Huguenot family who spelled their name Mazel. At any rate, Abraham Mazel was a wool carder by trade, a Huguenot preacher, and a leader of the opposition after the revocation . "The tribe of Mazel abounded in the Cevennes and they had already given many martyrs to the cause. Some emigrated to America, some were sent to the galleys; Oliver Mazel, the preacher, was hanged in Montpelier in 1690, Jacques Mazel was a refugee in London in 1701, and in all the Cevennes, there were Mazels leading as well as following" In America, the name was at first pronounced as one syllable and as if spelled "measle" . Actually, the names of two members of the first recorded North Carolina generation were often spelled "Meazel" and spelled "Mezell" at times. The modern spelling "Mizell" appeared at least as early as 1716. Family tradition has it that all known descendants were pronouncing the name as a two-syllable word with a long "i" and the accent on the second syllable by 1850 .

James Mizell 1730

Jesse Mizell Born / /1765 Died / /1827 Married Mary (Polly) Stallings

Quoted from Wiregrass Georgia

Jesse Mizell was Born about 1765 in North Carolina, a son of James ( Jesse)Edward Mizell ; He fought in the Revolutionary War, and served under Gen. Jasper at Savannah and under Gen. Francis Marion in South Carolina. He settled in Georgia after the war. His wife was Mary (Polly )Stallings, born 1775 in North Carolina. Jesse Mizell lived in Bulloch County for some years, but moved about 1806 to Montgomery County. He was commissioned Justice of Peace in the 59th District of Montgomery County Sept. 13, 1808 and was commissioned Jan. 16, 1810, as Captain of the Militia in the same district ( territory now in Emanuel County ). He sold out there and moved to the lower part of Montgomery County, and settled on the North Side of the Altamaha River, just below the confluence of the Oconee and Ocmulgee Rivers. There he was Justice of Peace 59th District of Montgomery County,1812-1816. In 1819, he sold out and moved across the Altamaha River into the new County of Appling and was living there when on August 22, 1821, he bought from Allen Parrish of Camden County, Lot of Land No. 2 in the 1st. land district of original Wayne but at the time Camden County, and described as "lying on the waters of Spanish Creek." This property was in 1854 cut out of Camden into the new County of Charlton. Mr. Mizell immediately moved to his new location and lived there until his death. ( Deed from Parrish recorded in Deed Book "L", page 191, Camden County). On Oct. 16, 1824, Mr. Mizell bought from William Johns the portion of adjoining Lot No. 12, from Hadleys Branch down to Spanish Creek ( Deed from Book "L" page 191, Camden County). The Mizell Plantation on the aforesaid land lots, was located on the east side of the old "King's Road" which was originally built in Colonial days from old Fort Barrington on the Altamaha River southward to the St. Mary's River; and was the old Indian line until 1818. After the death of Jesse Mizell in 1827 this property became the possession of his son Owen K. Mizell. Mr. Mizell was Justice Of Peace of the 32nd. District, Camden County, 1826- 1827, dying in office. While living in Appling he was named by the legislature as one of the persons to conduct the first election in Appling for Justices of the Inferior Court early in 1820. Jesse Mizell was buried on his old home-place in a family burying-ground. None of the graves were ever marked with permanent markers. The location of the graves were discernable until the last two or three years when the present owner, Sheriff J.O. Sikes of Charlton County, cleared off some woodland, embracing the old Mizell Plantation, and set out pecan trees. Mr. W.L. McDuffie aged grandson of Owen K. Mizell, can point out the approximate location of the old burying- ground which is just off U.S. Highway No. 1 . Mr. Mizell was one of the charter members of old Sardis Baptist Church in present Charlton County. This church which later adhered to the Primitive Baptist faith, is no longer functioning. Its records prior to about 1886 were burned; however, the minutes of the Piedmont Baptist Association show Jesse Mizell was a delegate from Sardis in 1822,1823,1824,1825; the church was unrepresented in 1826-1827. Mr. Mizell was an ordained deacon and frequently conducted devotionals and led in public prayer. His son, Owen K. Mizell, in later years became a deacon of Sardis Church and was ordained to the Gospel Ministry and served as its pastor many years prior to his death in 1893. Another son, James H. Mizell, moved to the west side of the Okefenokee Swamp and subsequently became an ordained deacon of Wayfare Primitive Baptist Church, and was licensed to preach by the Wayfare Church May 1st. 1852, later moving to Hillsborough County, Fla. Perry S. Mizell was a member of Sardis also.

Notes for James Clyde MIZELL

Social Security Number 267-54-4743

Billy Ray Mosley was born in Canal Point, Palm Beach County, Florida at 4:00 AM on 4 May 1932. He was the firstborn and only child of William Rufus Moseley and Vera Belle Todd Moseley. When he was 21 months old, his mother died and left him with his father who considered himself unable to provide his son with the best of home and atmosphere possible. Julia Todd Mizell, one of Vera's older sisters, only had one child (Christine), chose to request the opportunity to raise Billy Ray. His father consented with the stipulation that they never try to legally adopt him. Jim and Julia Mizell gave Billy Ray a wonderful home and all the love and material things necessary. They lived in Pahokee, Florida, a neighboring community of Canal Point. Billy Ray grew up in Pahokee, married the former Eva Mae Rutherford. After leaving his hometown where everyone always referred to him by his full name, Billy Ray Mosley, he felt that this was a boy's name and in the future always introduced himself as BILL. Bill Mosley spent most of his adult life in the management and marketing of agricultural chemicals. He was transfered and moved his family several times during his career. Leaving his hometown, Pahokee, Florida in 1965, he moved to Boynton Beach, Florida and then to Tampa, Florida in 1968. In 1972 the family moved to Fresno, California where he managed a sales staff of 70 salesmen. He was transfered to Overland Park, Kansas in 1975, then to Naples, Florida in 1976. He resigned from his employment in 1980, entering the real estate business full time. In 1982, he voluntarily moved back to Fresno, California, and in 1984, he accepted another management position in farm chemicals at Turlock, California. In 1990, he again entered the real estate field on a full time basis. Bill Mosley had lived with diabetes since about 1980 and as a result he took disability retirement in 1994. In 1996, he had triple by-pass heart surgery then had cataract surgery on both eyes in 1997 and 1998. Eva Mosley had been employed as a home inspector and field representative for mortgage lenders for several years, retiring in 2000. The couple bought a home in Fresno California and as of this writing (2001) they are living in Fresno, California near their daughter Vera and her family. Although he is clinically blind and connot read most source material, Bill Mosley can barely see his 19 inch computer monitor and is still compiling information for this family history.

Apparently, some of the Mizell's, were nominally loyal to England. An entry in the House Journal dated July 31, 1782, proves that they did not belong to the vicious class of Tory who warred against their Georgia neighbors. This entry was "A Bill for Restoring Certain Persons herein after mentioned to the Rights of Citizenship within the State". The bill proposed to divide 88 persons, who had surrendered themselves to a Col. Johnson, into two classes. In class one were to be placed 33 persons who should be restored to the Rights of Citizenship on condition that they find 3 recruits amongst them, and in class two were to be placed 55 persons who were to be put on the Amercement Bill. In the group to whom citizenship was to be restored were William, David, James, Luke, and John Meazel and Charlton Meazle. Further evidence that the Mizells had not been "bad" Tories is found in the fact that Luke Meazels qualified for membership in the House and was seated January 8, 1874, while David Meazel was appointed a Justice for the County of Effingham the same year . Lest any descendant judge them too harshly, it should be remembered that Georgia "was the last of the original 13 colonies to lower the English flag—was the youngest member of the sisterhood—was in need of the mother country's protection against threatened troubles with the Indians—possessed an excellent chief magistrate in Governor Wright. In proportion to the population, there were more Tories in Georgia than in any other state" . Furthermore, the Mizells lived in rural territory rather than in trade and shipping centers like Savannah and Augusta. In 1774, their neighbors in the Parish of St. George drew up a dissent to the resolutions adopted in Savannah on August 10 which they thought reflected improperly on "our" King . It should also be remembered that William and possibly other members of the family had received land grants from King George shortly before the outbreak of the war. Finally, it should be remembered that the British were in almost complete control of Georgia by the beginning of 1779 and that the British commander promised that the people who would take the oath of allegiance to the King would not be molested but that those who refused would be driven from the colony and their property confiscated .

THE REVEREND WILLIAM MIZELL (1781-1857) and MARY LOVE MIZELL (1786-1867)

Family tradition (1) records that the Reverend William was born near Savannah, February 4, 1781. Obviously his birthplace was the family farm in what was then Effingham or Burke County. William married Mary Love on October 28, 1802. Although the continued use of biblical names suggests that the Mizells held to the spiritual and moral values that prompted their Huguenot ancestors to emigrate from France, this is the first generation for whom denominational affiliations are recorded. A grandson, Daniel Bullard Mizell, wrote that William was an Episcopalian and Mary a Baptist at the time of their marriage, but that they afterwards joined the Methodist Church . It is not surprising that William was at first an Episcopalian. The Church of England was "The Church" of colonial North Carolina to which his ancestors had immigrated and it was also important in the early religious life of Georgia. There was a new Episcopal Church, known as St. George's Church, in the Parish of St. George near the present town of Waynesborough when the Mizells arrived. Perhaps they affiliated with this church. St. George's Church, later known as Old Church, became a Methodist Church. Methodism gained a foothold in and around Savannah about 1807, shortly after William's marriage. Considering the Mizell's Huguenot heritage, it is not surprising that William and Griffin should have been attracted by the less formal religion of the new denomination. For the same reason, it is easy to understand why William would have found evangelism among the Indians to his liking. After about a generation on the Ogeechee, the Mizells began to migrate again to new lands. James, a brother of William II, moved to Jackson County, Mississippi, about 1810. David, probably a cousin, moved from Camden County, Georgia, to a place called Alligator near the present Lake City, Florida, and established a prominent branch of the family in that state. David, Jr., was the first white settler in what is now Winter Park. His son, Judge John R. Mizell, was one of the founders of Rollins College. Griffin, son of William II, moved to Jones County about 1810, later to Telfair County where he lived until 1846, and finally to Lowndes, now Brooks County . The Reverend William and family also moved to Jones County, probably in 1809. Treaties with the Indians, the prospect for profitable cotton culture in the new "Western" cotton lands, and the pioneer spirit may have all contributed to the Mizells' decision to move. Family tradition's record that William was a Methodist minister and a missionary to the Indians suggests that his westward migration was motivated as much by his missionary spirit as by a hunger for new land. Chronologically, each westward move found him in new territory soon after it was opened to whites by a treaty with the Indians. The traditional record states that he was born near Savannah and moved to Bulloch County (tradition failed to take into account the fact that the part of his father's original grant that lay south of the Ogeechee was in territory that became Bulloch), thence to Jones County, thence to Houston County, Georgia; thence to Russell County, Alabama. Jones County was formed in 1807 from a part of Baldwin that was formed in 1803 from lands acquired by treaty with the Creek Indians. William settled here about 1809 and continued to reside in the county until the middle 1820s. Houston County was created in 1821 out of lands acquired from the Creeks under the first treaty of Indian springs. As created, Houston included land that lay south of Jones County. William and family must have moved into the new territory soon after it was acquired since a daughter, Martha, was born there in 1829. A son, Amos Love, married Mary Bryan in the same county in 1834. (The place name "Mizell" in eastern Taylor County, Georgia, on modern maps may intrigue the imagination of the Rev. William's descendants. Taylor was formed in part from Macon County, which in turn was formed in part from Houston. White, in his "Historical Collections of Georgia", lists William Measles among the first settlers of Macon County.) The The Reverend William's last move was to Dale County when he accompanied his son, Amos Love, and other children there in 1846. He died in Dale County on March 7, 1857, and was buried at Old Pleasant Hill Church. Daniel Bullard Mizell later wrote that he only remembered his grandfather at the time of his death when he called his grandchildren to his bedside to give them his farewell blessing. He said that he didn't remember what he said to his grandchildren but to his son he said, Amos, I'll be looking over the battlements of heaven for you." conclusion of the treaty with the Creek Indians which opened east-central Alabama to the whites was the signal for another westward move by the Reverend William and his family. Amos Love Mizell and his brother, the Reverend Luke, were recorded in the "History of Opelika" as being the first settlers in the vicinity of what is now Opelika in the then county of Russell . This history does not mention the Reverend William but there is a good reason to believe that the records referring to the Reverend Luke should have referred to his father, the Reverend William. A grandson, Daniel Bullard Mizell, wrote that William and Mary Mizell and all their children except Luke and William moved to Alabama and settled at or near where Opelika is situated in the year 1838 ( the date actually was three or four years earlier). A granddaughter, Mary Lov e Edwards Fleming, gave a good account of the Reverend William's relations with the Indians in Russell County . "My Mizell and Edwards grandparents and their families were living in Russell County at the time of the Indian war in 1836. One of my uncles, William Williams, nearly always had several Indians working for him. These Indians liked him and his family and when they knew that there was going to be war with the whites, they warned my uncle and told him that he and his people had better leave the country. Grandfather Mizell was a local Methodist minister and Missionary to the Indians. The Indians had great respect and reverence for him; they had the utmost confidence in what he told them, and often went to him for advice and counsel. They told him that they did not want him or his family ever to be hurt by their people. So, on the eve of war, they warned him to leave the country, and my Grandfather Mizell with Uncle William Williams and other white settlers took their families in wagons to their relatives in Georgia. Some of their property they took with them, but much of it was left at their homes. When they returned after all danger was passed, much of their property had been destroyed and some of their houses burned. But the Indians had harmed nothing at Grandfather Mizell's place. They said that Grandfather was a good man, and that they were afraid the Great Spirit would be angry with them if they destroyed anything belonging to him". emember what he said to the grandchildren but to his son he said, "Amos, I'll be looking over the battlements of heaven for you". Mary Love Mizell survived her husband by ten years. She died April 20, 1867, and was buried by his side at Pleasant Hill. When Camp Rucker was established during World War II, Old Pleasant Hill Church and Cemetery were moved to a new location about three miles from Ozark. The Reverend William's and Mary's headstones are located in the new cemetery.

David Mizell 1770-1850

David Mizell was born about 1770-75 in Old St. Matthews Parish, now Effingham County, Ga., a son of Charlton and Elizabeth (Everett) Mizell. David lived in Canden County,Moved to a Place near Lake City, Fla., then called Alligator) to reside. It was there that an Indian Massacre took place in the fall of 1838. At that time the family composed of Mr. and Mrs. John Tippons, a six months old child and a little three- year- old girl, Corneliz, was on the way to the fort for protection from the Indians, They were slain and butched before the horrified eyes of those who had reached safety behind the walls of the fort. All were slain but one infant girl. She was struck a few times by tomahawks and was thrown high into the air to be caught upon the Indians spears. Instead of being frightened, she gave such a shrill cry of laughter that the Indians caught her in their bare hands, laid her beside her dying mother, and fled, the little three- year- old girl, who was chopped in the head with the tomahawks, lived to be 88 years of age, having married a Mr. Mobley in 1861, father of late james obley of Lke Keystone. Cornelia Tippins was reared by her mothers sister, Sarah Ann (Mizell) Sparkman, wife of Byrd Sparkman, whose son Sim, was for many years tax assessor of Hillsborough County.grew up and married there, but the name of his wife has not been learned.

First wife to David Mizell.

Nancy Born. 1814, married John Undrwood Tippins, Jan. 22, 1825..

The Slaughter At Tiffen's Pond South of Sanderson is a small swampy area known as Tiffens' Pond. As is the case of all place names, there is a story behind the naming. In the early 1830's John Joshua Underwood Tippens, originally of North Carolina, brought his wife Nancy and three children into Columbia County (that part of which later became Baker). Due to the Cracker speech habit of substituting 'F' for double 'P' when located within a word, the locale became known as Tiffens rather than Tippens. Mr. Tippens was a son of Phillip and Mary Underwood Tippens of North Carolina. His wife was a daughter of David Mizell from Camden (Charlton) Co., Georgia. Mr. and Mrs. Tippens were married in Camden County at Traders Hill on the 22nd of January 1825. She was sister to ancestors of many Charlton, Baker, Union, Columbia, and Union citizens as well as many families in south Columbia. Her father, David, had recently moved to an area in south Columbia County, Florida (thought to be present Union Co.), and Mr. Tippens attempted removal of his family to the Mizell fortified home during an Indian alarm was the beginning of the incident which is related in this excerpt of a letter written by a neighbor to a relative in St. Marys, Georgia. "It is again my painful duty to inform you of a most shocking Indian massacre - I mean the murder of Mr. John Tippins and family. Mr. Tippins was bringing his wife and children out of Florida to see her parents, and when within a few miles of her father's house, was fallen in with about seven Indians, between 10 o'clock, A.M. and 12 o'clock. Mr. Tippens was shot from his horse, the Indians then made an easy capture of his helpless family and vented their savage spleen by beating them on the heads with their tomahawks. Mrs. Tippins lived (senseless) about forty hours, but did not speak; her skull was smashed in many places by the tomahawk. She died in the arms of her father, Mr. David Mizell. Her children are not yet dead, although the skull of each is factured in many places by the tomahawks. This melancholy occasion took place in this county last Monday not far from Ocean Pond. We are most critically situated. The Indians on the north of us close to the Okefinokee Swamp. On the south in the nation our market road leading from here to any market accessible to us passes through their gateway & we are here exposed on the border of the Okefinokee down both sides of the Indian gangways to the nation and no protection whatsoever from the army." The letter writer, in addition to almost waxing poetical regarding the unfortunate family's slaughter confused a few of the facts. The Tippens were not intending to leave Florida, but, according to the Mizell Family and the Green Family who found them, they were headed toward Mrs. Tippens' father's place to the southwest of them. Mrs. Elisha (Elizabeth Driggers) Green discovered the bloody scene, and left an eyewitness account. Mr. Tippens evidently died on the spot where he fell, shot from his horse. Mrs. Tippens was scalped, and left to bleed to death. The children, the youngest six months old and the eldest three years old, were chopped in their heads with tomahawks, and slung to the ground. Mr. Green was away in the army on a campaign against the Indians in the Alachua area. Mrs. Green and the children found Mrs. Tippens and the three year old Cornelia still living the next morning. Mrs. Tippens died soon after she was discovered. Little Cornelia survived, and died in 1926 at the age of 88. Mrs. Green buried the dead in one of her wagon bodies in presentday South Prong Cemetery (the Green family burial grounds). This 137 year old grave of John Joshua Underwood and Nancy Mizell Tippens and their two infants is located immediately north of Mr. Joe Jones grave.

David Mizell came to Camden County with his parents about 1790, and is shown there on the 1794 tax-digest. He served as Lieut, in the Camden County Militia in 1801. He seems to have gone back to Bullock county after the death of his first wife, and remained a few years, returning to Camden to remain there until he moved to Alachua County, Florida, about 1836-37. He lived there until his death. is wife died later, (date unknown). Mr. Mizell was a Captain of the Militia in the 49th Dist., Bulloch Counth, 1807-1809, and served as Justice of Peace, 381st Dist., Camden County, 1813-1814. He served in Maj.

It is said that his daughter, Nancy, stuck a sycamore switch in the ground, whiach she had used to whip her horse in riding horses back from North Florida. Thes tree still towers into the sky near Lake Mizell. Two or three of the orginal sweet orange tress still survive.

Nepoleon Bonaparte Mizelle ( Reads this way on tombstone) Some people put his name as (Morgan Bonaparte Mizzell) Born / /1863 Died / /1921 One of the most colorful characters in early Desoto County was "Bone" Mizzell. He was born in 1863 in the Horse Creek settlement in Manatee County. His father, Morgan, and his uncle Enoch were early pioneers of the area. Bone worked in the cattle industry most of his life, first for his father, then worked at various times for cattle baron, Eli O. Morgan, the Parker Brothers, and was forman for Ziba king. He worked the cattle ranges that stretched from Orlando and south to the upper Everglades. Bone was six feet tall, with a lean rawboned face that was tanned a deep brown, from all the years that he spent outdoors. It's said that he slept on the ground more than he ever slept in a bed. He spoke with a lisp and a slight wheeze, and was teased by his boyhood friends. He developed a sharp wit in defense and was a notorious prankster. Former Desoto County Sheriff, Les Dishong, once said that just the way he looked and talked made you laugh. Life-long Desoto resident, Gene Harn, said that "Bone didn't mean to be funny, it just came out that way." He was uneducated, barely able to write his name, but he managed to keep accounts in his head and remembered dozens of cattle brands. He once owned a grocery store at Pine Level, but his easy going nature and generosity with friends and credit caused him to finally close the store and go back to what he loved the most, riding the range. Bone was a hard drinking man, and knew that one day it would be the death of him. One night after the drink had gotten the best of him, a group of cowboys carried him to a cemetery and left him laying among the gravestones. When Bone woke up the next morning, he looked around, and said, "Here it is Judgment Day, and I'm the first one up." One night he was at a poker game at the Hollingsworth's home with Zeb Parker, Russell King, A. C. Williams, Maury and A. P. Hollingsworth. Sheriff Les Dishong showed up and told them they were under arrest. One of the players said they were not playing for money, just poker chips. Sheriff Dishong said that was the same as money. The next morning in court, the players were fined eighty-five dollars. After everyone paid their fine, Bone came forward and dumped out eighty-five dollars worth of poker chips on the table. Dishong said, "Wait a minute, this ain't money." Bone replied, "You said it was yesterday." By the late 1890's cattle rustling was rampant, and Bone was not immune to the lawlessness of the times. He was charged a number of times with rustling, altering brands and marking unmarked cattle and hogs, and it was rumored that he was stealing for a cattle king. In 1896 he was convicted and sentenced to two years in the state prison. A petition for his pardon was circulated by many of his friends, but they were told that he could not be pardoned until he actually served time. Bone was put on board a train with a brand new set of clothes, thanks to his friends, and a grand sendoff. He arrived at the prison, where the warden gave him a tour of the facilities, and invited him to dinner. Thus, having served time, he was pardoned, and Bone took the next train home. About 1893, Bone heard that his friend, John Underhill, was dying at a cow camp at Lee Branch near Punta Gorda. He arrived to take care of John, who died a few days later. Bone and the cowboys buried him nearby. Shortly after that, a young man drifted into the country and some how teamed up with Bone. The boy told him that he was from a wealthy family that lived in New Orleans, and that he had traveled throughout the world. Eventually the boy died and Bone had him buried next to John Underhill. A few years later, the family in New Orleans, having finally learned of their sons death, sent money to the local undertaker to have his body returned to them. The undertaker paid Bone to find the grave and oversee the disinternment. Bone later confessed to his friends that on the ride out to the grave, there were two things on his mind. One, that the boy had said that he was fed up with everything, most of all traveling. Second, that friend, John Underhill, had always wanted to travel, but never had the money to do it. Bone said, "Well, sir, it didn't seem right. It seemed even less right after a few drinks to sort of fortify us for the digging job. Here was a free train ride ahead, a funeral so damned fine this country had never seen the likes of it--probably with four white horses pulling the hearse." So it was that Bone pointed to the grave of John Underhill, and told his helpers to dig. On July 13, 1921, Bone spent the night at Joshua Creek, at the home of his friend, Leslie H. (Les) Avant. The next day he left for Arcadia by train for Fort Ogden, arriving at the village depot about eleven in the morning. He sent a wire to the Lykes Brothers in Tampa for some money, then lay down on a couch in the depot. Robert Morgan, son of E. H. Morgan, the agent for the Atlantic Coast Line Railway, said that he was worried about Bone, and asked him to sit up. Bone did so, and remarked that, "Yeah, I'd better not lay down, I might die." Robert left for lunch and when he returned found Bone lying dead on the floor. Dr. Aurin was called and pronounced Bone dead. A fellow asked him how he knew that, the doctor hadn't tested him. Dr. Aurin said, "I don't have to test him, I know that right now Old Bone would test a good 90 proof." The undertaker, L. L. Morgan entered the cause of death as "Moonshine---went to sleep and did not wake up." Morgan Bonaparte "Bone" Mizzell's funeral was held the next day at the home of his nephew, Jesse Mizzell Jr., and he was buried at Joshua Creek Cemetery. He was fifty-eight years old. His pallbearers were Leonard Smith, Henry Avant, J. M. Alderman, W. H. Seward, Paul Spear, and Hooker Parker. Some say his wife was Betty Ward

David William Mizell Born / / 1833 Died 2 /21 /1870 married Angeline Augusta May on 12/21/1854, Served in the C.S.A. Buried Old Pioneer Cem.in Fla.Also served during the Seminole Wars. Hartman/Biographical Rosters.In Winter Park's beautiful Leu Gardens there is a small burial plot holding the remains of a man born in the vicinity of Fort Olustee and Fort Alligator, squatted in an old Spanish fort in Key West, was appointed first sheriff of Orange County, and was gunned down by orders of this writer's third great grandsire. He was Dave Mizell, member of a long- time and large family that stretched from the Carolinas into south Florida. He was born in his father's heavily stockaded farm home in 1833. Within two years the stockade became important to neighbors as they flocked there for refuge during the long Seminole War. Mr. Mizell's biographer Steve Fussell states the young man grew up amid interesting characters, tough pioneer families and rangy backwoodsmen.The story goes that Dave's father, also named David, grew weary of the overpopulated section near the present Lake City and decided to move to wilder country farther south. For a while the family lived in old Benton County near Wanton's agency (the terminus of the old Alachua Trail as recounted in the BCP recently), now among the lakes of the Micanopy area. He soon grew tired of all the new settlers filling the country between Gainesville and Ocala (more properly, between Newnansville and Fort King), and Mr. Mizell, Senior, cast his eyes south again. With the end of hostilities in 1842, former Seminole land opened to settlers who would claim and improve large acreages for each dependent. New counties were being cut out of Monroe and Dade, and opportunities to be in on the groundfloor of the newly emerging counties, as well as vast stretches of cattle- grazing lands (not to mention several herds of Indian cows and horses), drew the Mizells and other families still farther south. Some of Mr. Mizell's biographers either did not know or did not wish to open old wounds, but they en masse omit mentioning that the senior Mizell had difficulties getting along with his neighbors and carried the reputation (unproved but still carried) of cow-stealing. Being connected to both major families involved in the allegations and having done considerable snooping among older wags, this writer is of the opinion that the allegations were not without some justification but that the entire matter smacked of the pot calling the kettle black. One of the Pearce girls, Mary, a relative of the Mizells, later described the journey to south Florida (anything south of Newnansville was "south Florida" in the old days): "It has got so hot, and we all thought it might be on account of our being so far south. It was dry, and there were flies and gnats, and we children would take turns getting out of the wagon and walking in the deep, hot sand. I guess our water had spilled, or maybe we had given it to the team. Soon we were all walking, and thirsty, and leading the team. "It started to rain, and we camped. We had to cook in the rain. Next day, all day it rained and the woods were full of water, with the awfullest, deepest holes in the roads, and the horses were falling down. Then everything stopped. Father said, 'This is it. We're here!' "There was not one house! Poor Mother, we all gathered around her in the wagon trying to keep her dry and warm. It had turned cold then. She told us, 'We haven't seen a house or a person for a week, so don't let yourselves get sick. There aren't any doctors' here.' "Sister Sally was one year old that day. It was Christmas Day, 1858 The David Mizell family settled land on the bank of Lake Rowena in what is now Winter Park. They had no sooner constructed their log cabin when their fears born of the cries for secession and war came true - Florida and her southern sister states separated from the Union and declared war against the United States. The Mizells of central Florida, like so many other Crackers, were not in favor of the Confederacy's actions; but when the battles were imminent, the young men went to serve the new nation. One of the older brothers, John, was commissioned a lieutenant in the Seventh Florida Infantry and was captured by Union forces during the battle of Missionary Ridge. David never saw battle but was stricken with cholera en route to Savannah. Their brother Tom was killed during the battle for the city of Richmond. David's wife drove her wagon up into Georgia to bring her husband home. Some of the family later said that a doctor had recommended a warmer climate near the sea and a diet of fish and vegetable broth for the remainder of Dave's life. Angeline loaded Dave and their one child back into the wagon and headed for the coast. It isn't known how long she stayed there with her sickly husband and her child, but Key West seemed to fit the bill much better. She purchased a sailboat and removed them to the Keys. Key West was in Union hands and probably was relatively free from battles. There in an abandoned Spanish fort Dave recuperated and another child was born (ever notice that no matter how sickly a man is the babies keep arriving?). Some of Dave's enemies later said that it was while he was in Key West that he made the deal whereby he would be appointed sheriff of his home county when the war was over. For reasons never mentioned in family circles, Angeline set sail for Florida's lower east coast and landed her family near Cutler Ridge in the present Miami area. The soil was poor to non-existent and there was little market for fish in those troubled times and in an area where anyone could catch his own, but east coast pines grew abundantly and Angeline set up a pitch plant to supply naval tar to passing ships. The business proved lucrative. Many a ship and small boat sailed into Biscayne Bay for her product. However, a Union gunboat, said to have been angered by Angeline's high prices, set fire to her plant. The south Florida experience had proved to be no more a picnic than north and central Florida so the Mizells sailed up the coast for home. The war, incidentally, was over and so were David's chances of being re- conscripted into the Confederate Army. The United States quickly removed Florida's government and instituted a reconstruction form of politics. Many Florida counties had Blacks and imported Northerners appointed as sheriff, but the Reconstruction Government chose David Mizell for Orange County. Florida had many pro-Union men before the war, but for some reason or another they were mostly ignored except for a distinguished few. Stories of Dave's derring-do have circulated and grown throughout central Florida over the past century. Whatever he might have or not have been, Dave Mizell was a loyal Reconstruction man. In spite of his descendants' tales that he took the job of sheriff to protect his fellow former Confederates, he was never known to have sided with them even when history and all contemporary circumstances proved them morally and legally right. The man was no fool and was well aware from whence came the butter for his bread. John Mizell was appointed judge of Orange County; and, as put by many citizens of the area, "they had the people right where they wanted them. After the Civil War, cattle were scarce and in great demand. All over the South, and especially in the central Florida area, cow stealing became big business. The Mizells and their allies, the Basses, accused the Barber family and their allies of illegally rounding up other people's stock. The Barbers in turn claimed the Mizells were sweeping the woods clean of cattle under the guise and protection of the law. Exorbitant taxes were imposed on unreconstructed Floridians such as the Barbers (originally, as members of the old Whig party they had been opposed to secession but, when it happened, cast their lots with the Confederacy and held out against the United States government after the war). Most were unable to pay the taxes and believed them unjust. Judge John Mizell directed his brother Sheriff Dave to collect in cattle. When Dave "collected" out of Mose Barber's herd he was told, "If you ever enter my herd again, Dave Mizell, you'll leave feet-first." Mose Barber, a part-time resident of Baker and Columbia Counties, was up to his neck in debt and court cases as he tried to hold together his little central Florida empire in the face of insurmountable odds. He lost still another of the court cases and Judge Mizell demanded the Sheriff to collect court costs from Mose. Sheriff Dave knew Barber's finances almost as well as did Barber and realized that instead of getting money he would have to once more visit Mose's cattle herds. In the meantime the Orange County courthouse, like hundreds of others in the South, burned to the ground with all its records. As in other parts of the South, the unreconstructed Bourbon- Democrats accused the Scalawags, Carpetbaggers, and Blacks of the deed. The Reconstructionists naturally returned the accusation. The destruction of land and court records proved beneficial to both sides in many cases. The county, much larger then than now, divided into bitter sides, and many were ready to join in the feud when it began. In early 1870 an Orlando farmer named Bullock approached Sheriff Mizell with a bill of sale for cattle from the Barbers but which he could not collect. Mizell and his brother Morgan and twelve year old son Billy headed for south Orange County (the present Osceola County) to force one of the Barbers (either General or Champion by name) to deliver up the cows to Bullock. When they reached Bull Creek near the present Kenansville, they were ambushed. Sheriff Mizell's killer was never found but a local Barber sympathizer named Needham Yates later claimed credit for the deed and impilcated Mose Barber as his hirer. Morgan returned to the Mizell homestead 75 miles north for help and left young Billy to guard his father's body against the wolves. Billy held to a floating tussock in the middle of the stream all night long clutching Dave's body. Billy said that his father's last words were that no one seek revenge for his death, but Dave's brothers and relatives scoured the countryside for Barbers, killing every one they found. Any captured were shot rather than saved for trial since they were certain the majority of the populace, wanting to be free from the Mizell power, would have been sympathetic to the victims. Mose Barber returned for a short while to the north end of the State to dispose of the remainder of his Florida holdings, and, saying good- bye to his Baker County relatives, departed forever from the state. The Mizells, meanwhile, regrouped their power and soon had the central part of the state in their hands. And, by-the-way, they proved to be a most enlightened political family, today commanding the respect and admiration of their fellow citizens. The body of Sheriff Dave Mizell was brought back to the shore of Lake Rowena to rest under a sycamore planted by his mother when they first arrived in the present Winter Park area. Later on, a lot of folks in that section said, "Orange County lost the first and last sheriff it ever had when Dave Mizell died. (from The Way It was by Gene Barber)

From: Alabama' Missing Barber ( Pot Of Boiling)

Long eerie shadows of pine and bay trees played grotesquely across the figures four men who stood ominously still in a lonely dirt road that led to the village Vinegar Bend, Ala., a few miles east of the Mississippi state line.

The strange quartet were variously garbed in native blue denim overalls, faded olen shirts and thick-soled leather boots. From the hands of each dangled a high-powered rifle or shotgun. A queer uncertainty of impending action dominated their grim, unsmiling faces.

Wash Dailey, youngest of the four, crushed a cigarette in the dust after two puffs.

"Something's wrong here" , he muttered. " Abe should have been here half an hour ago. You sure you got, this straight?

Joe Shumro straightened his giant frame to full height. Slightly past 40, hes half a head taller than the rest. His sensuous mouth curled into a sarcastic smile. Fierce, narrow-set eyes appraised Daily from head to foot.

"What you so nervous about?" he sneered. "Maybe you'd like to back out of this Daily. Abe said he would be here by dark and that means he'll be here."

The other two stood silently apart, Wesley Berry, whose gray hair and furrowed cheeks branded him the oldest, merely nodded. Emile Gurney turned his bald head and walked furtively down the narrow road.

"Here he comes"

A hundred yards distant, through the somber May dusk, a bent form of the Village Barber , Abe Baxter, was approaching. In his left hand he held a bulging suitcase.Under his right arm was a single barrel shotgun, walking slightly behind him was his 30-year old nephew, Gene Mizelle.

Baxter's worn face betrayed his 45 years. The last rays of the setting sun lighted his features as he came closer, and smiled warmly at the four men whom he had known since childhood.

"Sorry I'm a little late boys," he apologized. "I had some packing to do, where'll we hunt?"

The quartet ignored the apology, shifted nervously. The Tall,black-haired Skumro spoke.

"Did you tell anybody you was going deer hunting ,Abe? Baxter's intuition warned him that something was amiss. These men had more on their minds than an enening deer hunt.

The barber's misgivings increased as tight-lipped smiles crossed the faces of the men about him. Tremulously he added, "Why? What's it to you?.

Joe Skumro merely shrugged.

Baxter notice suddenly that everyone in the party was standing stark still.

Abe thought it was growing late and the time to hunt was short, no one made a move. At last , Wash Dailey the barber's brother-in -law, stepped forward.

"Abe, I want to settle a little business matter with you. I want to borrow $75,".

Baxter eyed him apprehensively, so that was it! Involuntarily his hand sought his bulging hip pocket to feel a wallet containing $1400 in cash.

This money represented the proceeds from the sale of his barber shop at Fruitdale, and his school bus, plus his soldier bonus, lately received. He was aware these men knew that, with the $1400 as a stake, he was leaving Fruitdale to seek new fields in the West.

"I'm not a bank" he stammered. "And I havn't got any money to lend. I need every penny I've got to start a new business."

"You mean to tell me you would't loan a relative $75, with that bank roll you've got in your pocket?" Dailey snarled. The words were not a question but a threat.

Involuntarily the barber stepped backward, his heart beat a crazy taitoo as he saw Dailey's shotgun drop from his armpit to his hand.

"Maybe I could let you have $50," Baxter amended hastily.

There was no response, and frantically he looked about for an avenue of escape, then he saw Wash Dailey's shotgun slowly rise. It was leveled not at him, however, but at his nephew, Gene Mizell.

With all the force Abe could muster he started to run, hardly knowing which way he was headed.

"Shoot him or I'll kill you," Daily commanded, his weapon aimed at Mizelle's head.

The latter, who up to now had been a silent spectator, suddenly found himself an unwilling actor in a gripping melodrama. He brought up his weapon with the deliberation of a helpless automaten and sighted down the barrell at his uncle. As though some fiendish phanton controlled him, his finger pressed the trigger. Abe Baxter toppled crazily in the dust and rolled over twice. The blast of lead had caught him in the shoulder.

Calmly stalking the helpless victim, Joe Skumro pointed his double barreled gun at the back of the barber's neck. The sound of the shot echoed through the hills.

Amazingly, the twice-wounded man refused to die. In barely distinguishable words.

During the entire action Emile Gurney and Wes Berry stood at the side of the road,near the gate to the abandoned John Gardner cabin. Emile, remotely related to the barber's nephew, Gene Mizelle, had not once spoken and appeared genuinely surprised at the rapid sequence of events.

Wash Dailey's harsh voice broke the moment of silence that followed the murder.

"That's what happens to tightwads," he sneered. "Gene , go through his pockets"

Thoroughly cowered by the older man, Mizelle bent over his dead uncle. With growing terror he realized he might be the next victim. The only alternative was to do everything he was told.

He rummaged through Baxter's pockets and found the wallet stuffed with bills. "Get the rest," Dailey snarled. Mizelle reached down again. His fingers clutched the barber's watch and a large pocket knife, an heirloom his father and grandfather had carried.

"Okay" Dailey said. Give me that stuff".

Mizelle tremulously watched as the older man counted off $1,400 in large bills.

"Here take this for your trouble," Dailey said , holding out some bank notes , " And keep your trap shut, remember, you are the guy who did the killing, if anybody in this gang gets caught, you'll be a dead farmhand."

Mizelle was too frightened to observe that he had received only $40 . He pockted the money and said nothing.

He began to consider some method of escape. He thought of going to the Sheriff's office at Chatom, but Dailey's sneer-"you are the guy who did the killing " was still ringing in his ears as he watched his uncle's bleeding corpse being carried to Skumro's farm truck, parked a hundred feet up the road.

Dailey ordered the other four to climb in the truck and then he got behind the wheel. He started to drive to the old Stremich farm where he and Skumro were camping. The place had been abandoned for years.

After three miles of bumping over deep, jagged ruts, the truck jerked to a stop. Dailey sprang from his seat and ordered Mizelle to carry the body into the unpainted shack. Mizelle obeyed. He gently laid his burden on the floor of what once had been a bedroom, then watched Joe Skumro drive spikes to secure the door.

Afterwards all five walked to a spring, with only the moon as witness, they stooped to wash the blood from their hands. Then Mizelle pointed to his jumper and overalls, which were covered with blood, Dailey ordered him to removed them, and bury them in the woods.

Back in the shack, Dailey pointed to Emile Gurney and Wes Berry

Gene Mizelle and his two "guards" lay down on the bare plank floor, Slowly a plan formulated in Mizelle's mind as he listened to the steady breathing of his two companions.

Pushing himself to his knees, he could see the upturned faces of the two killers in the filtered rays of the moon, carefully he raised himself until he stood erect.

With stealthy strides he moved to the door , and slowly pulled at the knob, the squeak of a rusty hinge froze him motionless, the giant form of Joe Skumro turned over, suddenly sprang to life.

"What in hell are you doing there?" he demanded. "I couldn't sleep," Gene stammered , "I wanted to get some air."

Wash Dailey, also arouse and thoroughly angered, snarled, "One more false move out of you , and you'll be shaking hands with your uncle." Dailey sprawled himself across the doorway and soon was fast asleep again.

Slumber would not come to Mizelle, with a shudder he reflected that in the next room lay the corpse of the uncle who in life had been his closest friend. Again and again his feverish mind reviewed the slaying. Just last week he and Abe Baxter had returned from a trip through Arkansas , for two weeks they had been inseparable companions. His uncle had paid all expenses, it had been a wonderful vacation-a bright spot in Mizelle's drab existence as a farmhand, and now Abe was dead.

At dawn Mizelle watched his jailers carefully inspect the nailed door of the other room, Then they went outside and peared into the window to see if the body was visible to possible prying eyes. Finally satisfied, they faced the quaking Mizelle, "What'll we do with him?" Skumro grinned with a mock show of consideration.

"Let him go," Dailey snapped, "after all , he did the job, We're just witnesses, if he ever opens his mouth, it's all of us against him, he don't dare open his trap."

In a daze Gene Mizelle stumbled to the home of a relative. Throughout the day he sat on the front porch gazing into space, several times he opened his mouth as though to speak, but immediately changed his mind. At another home a sneer crossed the face of big Joe Skumro as he turned to Wash Dailey.

"We did the perfect crime," he said, Abe Baxter was leaving home for keeps, nobody will miss him and start snooping around. Him and his wife didn't get along,so she won't think nothing of it."

Six days later Jimmy Morris, a farm youth, was wandering through the woods near Vinegar Bend, as he reached a small clearing his eyes suddenly were attracted by the unusual sight of nearly a hundred giant buzzards circling over a spot not far distant. Curious, he ran forward and came upon the abandoned Donald farm shack. The huge carrion birds were swooping down to the dwelling, when they spotted Morris they winged away.

Jimmy examined the yard but could see no evidence of dead flesh, the chief menu of buzzards. Inside the crude building he encountered an odor so vile that he hurriedly made an exit, curiosity overcame his nausea, however, and he drew a big breath and rushed back into the shack and peered into the dark corners.

Several such attempts failed to reveal the source of the horrible stench, and at last Morris started to leave. He was unaware of a pair of beady eyes that watched his every move from the concealment of nearby foilage.

The hidden figure raised a high-powered rifle and took deliberate aim at the youth, but then the man changed his mind and lowered the weapon. After, he had gone away, Joe Skumro emerged from the thicket and looked stealnily about. He placed an old box near the window at one side of the shack stood on it and peered in through a narrow crevice.

Wrapped in a ragged blanket lay the corpse of Abe Baxter, it had been transferred to this new hideaway from the Stremich farm a few nights before. Careful to tread only on hard ground, Skumro back-tracked to the thicket where he again took up his virgil until dark. He was cursing to himself, Why hadn't Wash Dailey thought of buzzards? Perfect crime, bah!

Suddenly a happy thought crossed the dull brain of the swarty giant, he grinned broadly . Jimmy Morris hadn't actually seen that body and what he suspected didn't matter.

Noiselessly, with the intuition of a born huntsman, he hurried through the woods, reached a small clearing, and after peering furtively about, climbed into his old truck which he had parked in the road. Half an hour later he was talking to Wes Berry and Gene Mizelle.

"I'm going to have a little boiling party tonight," Skumro said, " and you two are going to help me." For the next hour he outline his scheme, Berry nodded in admiration and Mizelle shuddered.

At 9:00 that night the trio trudged through yhe woods, Skumro in the lead, he carried an empty 100 pound lard can. When they got near the Donald shack he filled the can from a spring while Wes Berry started a blazing fire with dead branches, and twigs laid crosswise between rocks. Soon the water was boiling.

"Now," Skumro laughed loudly at his own joke, "we're going to give Abe Baxter a decent burial."

They brought out the corpse and laid it near the dancing flames, Skumro and wes Berry, jesting over the gruesome task, carefully removed every bit of clothing. The fire settled into hot embers and the large pot was bubbling over.

With only the light of a full moon, Skumro hacked at the body with a large hunting knife and placed the pieces in the boiling water. When this was completed he washed his hands in the spring and sat down to wait. Hours that seemed ages of nightmarish horror to Gene Mizelle passed slowly by. Then he saw the giant test his handiwork with several sticks.

"Nicely done, " Skumro muttered. He motioned to Wes Berry and the two drained the can of water.

Then limb, Skumro proceeded to cut flesh from the bones with the hunting knife. He placed each bone in a gunny sack at his feet, permitting the flesh to drop to the ground.

When the fiendish job was ended he tied the sack with a length of hemp and beckened to his companions. Several hundred yars deep in the woods he discovered the low limb of a bay tree. There he hung the last of Abe Baxter.

Returning to the spring, Skumo and Berry carefully gathered the victim's clothing and hid them along an old fence row in high weeds.

The killers had performed what they thought was a perfect crime, provided none of them talked-also provided no prying hunter ran across the gunny sack full of Abe's bones hung on the bay tree.

Either possibility seemed very remote. Dailey and Skumro had forcefully reminded both Gene Mizelle and Emile Gurney that all five were equally guilty in the eyes of the law and that arrest of any one of them meant certain death for all.

Nor did they worry about the bones. Even if they were found, there would be no proof of the actual crime.

As Sheriff, I had known Abe Baxter intimately and seldom went to Fruitdale without stopping to see him. His barber shop was a gathering place for folks from miles around. I had heard of his unfortunate break with his wife and knew that he had left Fruitdale. When he bade his wife and small son a final goodby, he told them he was going forever, They knew nothing of his plans.

Three months passed, close friends of Baxter began to wonder why he didn't write, then someone recalled that the barber had displayed a large roll of bills , on the day of his departure.

When this story reached my office at the courthouse, I listened with interest, but could see no reason to open an investigation. Perhaps in the excitement of starting life anew Baxter had merely neglected to write his cronies.

That year many complaints reached my office of deer shooting out of season, head the list of culprits was the name of Joe Skumro. I turned the reports over to Game Warden H.D. Lyons . With my deputy, G.E. Alday, we went to Joe's home, the Officers, seeing no one about, thoroughly searched the yard, and out-buildings for evidence of illegal hunting, but could fine nothing , then Lyons entered one door of the small abode and Alday the other, hearing a stealthy sound behind him, Alday wheeled to find himself staring into the muzzle of a double-barreled shotgun in Skumro's hands. The deputy saw that the weapon was uncocked and, with a movement so rapid it was almost imperceptible he leveled his own weapon at the big farmer, cocking the hammer on the way up.

"Drop the gun Joe, or I'll fire," he ordered calmly. The big man's weapon thudded to the floor. "You've been shooting deer," the deputy said, "come along with us."

The officers, with some surprise, noted an expression of relief cross the face of their captive. " Is that all you're after"? Skumro sneered. " You ain't got a thing on me."

They did'nt have evidence of deer hunting, but Joe was tried for resisting arrest with a loaded gun, and got a year and a day at Kilby prison. We could'nt figure out then why he took his sentence with a smile.

When a year had gone by and no one had heard from Abe Baxter, I was again mildly curious. Learning that Gene Mizelle had accompanled his uncle to Arkansas, I got from him a list of towns they had visited, and mailed letters of inquiry to police officials, and sheriffs asking them to locate Abe.

None of them had ever heard of Abe Baxter. Murder cases have three elements-a corpse, a motive, and killer or killers.

We began to suspect there was a motive for killing Abe Baxter. We knew Abe left home with his soldier bonus, plus the receipts from the sale of his barber shop and school bus. We knew he had disappeared but months fled by with no proof that there was a corpse or a killer. Then two years after the crime, a strange thing happened.

One night in autumn some 20 farmers near Fruitdale were celebrating the harvest with dance and song. In one corner of the living-room sat a group of young folk. In their center was Gene Mizelle , Abe's nephew, entertaining those who would listen with homespun yarns. Conversation at a lull, Ruth Trilby remarked, " Too bad Abe Baxter isn't with us any more. He sure could fry chicken."

Mizelle stared at her, " Abe won't fry no more chicken," he said slowly. " He's guarding the crossing."

Then, realizing his careless slip, he drew in his breath, glanced quickly from face to face to see if his remark had registered. Someone laughed, it was apparent Gene was just pulling one of his wisecracks. The conversation turned to other topics.

But Ruth Trilby didn't laugh. Barely 18, she had heard rumors concerning Abe Baxter's disappearance. Silently gazing at Mizelle's face, her woman's intuition told her that here was a remark which had deep significance.

Everybody around Fruitdale knew about the old "crossing" . It was a secluded spot in the big woods where an abandoned dirt road crossed a faint foot trail. Ruth quietly left the group in the corner and imparted her suspicions to her friend, Frank Robbins .

The latter grinned broadly, and said that it was probably one of "Gene's crazy remarks." Next day, however, Robbins was setting coon traps in the woods and when he neared the crossing he decided to satisfy a mild curiosity, whistling softly, he headed for the opening.

When he reached a low-spreading bay tree his whistling stopped abruptly. His face turned chalky white and he felt his knees grow weak.

Robbins, like most natives, had hunted ever since he could walk and had seen the carcass of every type of animal in the country. But the bones lying there in front of him on the ground were different. They were human!

More convincing was a rusty shotgun, a man's belt, an old hat, a mud-spattered pair of shoes and a pair of trousers stiffened with exposure. These articles, with the bones, had fallen to the ground when the burlap bag rotted away.

The youth turned on his heel, ran almost a mile to the home of Oscar Weldy on Mill Creek Road and breathlessly told his tale. The latter called Sheriff Sowell, at LeaskesvilleMs. - the crossing being in Sowell's county.

The Sheriff and his deputy, Joe Thomas, soon were gingerly inspecting the strange find. To the untrained eye, it would seem that some hunter had met with an accident and greedy buzzards had finished him off. But Sowell's eye was not untrained. He at once noted that the theory of accidental death was unconvincing. "Look at those clothes," he told his deputy. "See anything wrong there"? As the other officer stared, he added, "They aren't rotted enough to have been on the body when it decomposed. There's something else; if buzzards ate the flesh, why aren't the trousers torn?" " Nope," the sheriff said slowly, " that man died with his clothes off. Either that, or somebody took ‘em off right after he died."

Sowell soon had the story from young Robbins as to how he had made his gruesome discovery from Gene's careless remark of the night before. Sowell called my office at Chatom and I rushed to the scene, arriving about the same time as the coroner. It was quickly evident to all of us that those bones had been there for many months. We began the unpleasant task of gathering up the remains and placing them in a carton. Suddenly I spotted a small metal clamp screwed in a leg bone and my excitement grew. Abe had had a broken leg. A surgeon had repaired the break, I knew, with a metal clamp. A few moments later, the coroner brushed some dirt from the shoulder blade, and exclaimed, " look at this," he pointed to a large ragged hole , obviously made by gunshot. No question now in my mind. This was Abe Baxters body and he had been murdered. It would be an easy matter to locate the surgeon and have him identify his own handiwork. Since it appeared the crime had been committed on the Mississippi side, I found Gene Mizelle, and brought him to the Leakesville, Ms., jail. But if we expected a confession we were deemed to disappointment, for Gene steadfastly and emphatically denied having any part in the murder of his uncle. " I had a dream," he said, looking me streight in the eye. " I often have dreams that come true. This time I saw Abe's body lying at the crossing. Everybody knows I wouldn't hurt him. I liked him better than anyone in the world."

For a solid week he refused to alter this strange tale. We knew we were helpless. Abe Baxters body was positively identified by the surgeon who had repaired his leg. We knew he was murdered, but we had no evidence as to when, where, or by whom.

At length we were forced to release Gene. Then an idea struck me . I was positive that Mizelle thought a great deal of Abe Baxter and that if he really knew anything as to how his uncle met his death he was refusing to talk only because he feared for his own life, if this were true no amount of persuasion could move him. But an emotional appeal might.

After a conference with State Solicitor Joe Pelham; we quietly brought Gene to the latter's office . On the big table were spread the bones of Abe Baxter. "That ," I said to him, "is your uncle. We are convinced that you had nothing to do with his killing. But we're certain you know how it happened. Will you talk if we promise to protect you?

The effect was electric, Gene's eyes welled with tears. He grabbed me by the coat lapels, "I'll talk ," he screamed. "I'll tell the whole story, but you'll have to protect me. They'll kill me. They said they would and they will."

Gene did talk. He told us the whole weird, gruesome story, from beginning to end, detailing th life of horror he had led ever since that night in the dusk two years before. " I really didn't mean to hit him. " he finished sobbing, " but I was so scared I didn't know what I was doing."

The night after the murder, Gene sobbed, Abe's body was carried deep into the woods to the Donald shack and placed in a rafter which opened off the porch. When Skunro discovered the buzzards, the boiling party followed.

Six months later Skumro, Dailey and Berry had taken down the gunny sack from the bay tree limb, scattered Abe's bones at the crossing and cunningly placed his shotgun, watch and clothing where, believing it would appear an accidental death.

But the fiendish killers had overlooked several minor details, as killers generally do.

That night Joe Skumro, Wes Berry, Wash Dailey and Emile Gurney were safely lodged in jail, but each stoutly denied any part in the crime. When news of the confession leaked out a muttering crowd gathered and we were forced to rush three of the prisoners out the back door- Skumro to Mobile, Dailey to Waynesboro, Miss and Gene Mizelle back to Leaksville. We still had no evidence against the killers except Gene Mizelle's signed confession. One man's word against four. A very weak case indeed, if the defendants hired a good lawer.

Jimmy Morris, who saw mthe buzzards over the Donald shack, came foward with his story but it was of slight value as evidence. There was but one chance left, and that a slim one, to pin the crime on the actual killers. In desperation, we were forced to resort to it.

We placed Wes Berry and Gene Mizelle in the same cell and carefully hidden deputy listened nearby. Almost at once Berry said, "We‘re all going to burn for this, Gene, unless you change your story. If you do there won't be any case against us. You just let on like you been crazy half your life and didn't know what you were saying." To the deputy's utter amazement, he heard Gene agree! Had our plan rebounded? If Gene carried out this latest promise our case was shot to pieces and I knew we would have to release them all.

While we were studying what next to do a trusty tipped me off that Skumro had somehow smuggled a hunting knife into his cell and had bragged to prisoners, he was going to kill jailer Whitset and Deputy Alday, he was going to " cut their heads off," he boasted. Whitset and I rushed to his cell. I drew my service revolver, aware of the fierce brutality of the man, and ordered him to throw his knife to me on the floor. For several moments he gazed at us sullenly, then reached in his pocket and tossed the knife forward.

In May, 1932, trials in the weirdest muder case in the history of the South began. We literally held our breath as Gene Mizelle took the stand.

One by one he pointed out his four companions on the night of then murder as the latter sat glumly staring. At three separate trials of Wash Dailey, Joe Skumro and Wes Berry, he repeated the story verbatim. Wash Dailey, Abe's brother-in law, was mad because Abe was leaving home, he said. Joe S kumro wasn't mad about anything, the witness declared. He just wanted Abe's money. Wes Berry, he averred, was ired because he thought Abe had paid undue attention to his daughter. Gene couldn't explain Emile Gurney's presence at the murder and declarer the latter had taken no part whatever in the actual crime.

Just before the trials began, we discovered a surprise witness. Elmer Turner, of Fruitdale, had borrowed a two-bladed knife from Wash Dailey a year before. He still had the knife and was convinced it belonged to Abe Baxter, his friend.

Three juries found Daily, Skumro and Berry guilty of first degree murder. Berry , first to be tried, drew life, as did Wash Dailey, Joe Skumro got 50 years. As the fourth trial, Emile Gurney's attorney put up a brillant defense and his client was subsequently released and completely exonerated.

Gene Mizelle, star witness for the state and the only man to confess the weird story, was indicted on charges of first degree murder, but after Gurney's acquittal, the charges were dropped.

To this day, Gene will freely discuss the crime with anyone who wants to talk about it. He lives on a farm near Fruitdale. Wes Dailey and Joe Skumro still idle their days in Alabama State Prison at Kilby.

And Abe Baxter's bones, at this writing, still repose in the attic of the courthouse at Chatom, unhuried and unclaimed in a brown pasteboard carton.

From: Sandra W. Doolittle

Story goes Owens owned (1872) a store in Escatawpa and he owed my great grandpapa Dr. Joseph R. Waldrop money when . g-grandpapa went to collect it Owens shot him in the back of the head and left him in a field buried under leaves. My great-grandpapa was one mean man...he was six foot-six inches tall... Physician, Minister, Ret. Merch., Justice of the peace. State Rep. of Washington County... and also the KKK.. he once beat up the Judge of Probate while in his klan's robe. The Judge reconized his voice, and his height.... So if Owens was going to take him out... the way he did it was the best way.
