WHO DO I THINK I AM? WOW! Part 47
My g-g- grandparents John T. and Drusilla Wilson Huey had 7 children. The 4th child was Monroe Huey. He died young. In the family bible this is the entry by his name:
Beaten to death by the Brawley boys.
And that was it. I wonder if John and Drusilla had the boys arrested for killing their son or what. Was there revenge?
On the 1860 Census there was a Brawley family living near by.
Another of their children was Greenberry Huey. Greenberry married Alice. They had two sons, Thomas Jeff and Ed.
Here is a notation about the two sons:
In Greenberry's old age Ed took care of him. When Greenberry died he left everything to Ed. This made his brother Jeff furious. Jeff went to Ed. Ed was sitting on his front porch with his two sons. Jeff shot and killed Ed in front of his sons. Jeff was sent to the Georgia Chain Gang for murder. His wife eventually got him out.
