  • Newspaper, 10 APR 1873: "On Sunday last, U. S. Marshal [sic.] Pierce, arrived here from Oxford, immediately arrested George Mitchell. Upon a charge of having, in the disguise of Ku Klux, been implicated in the perpetration of an assault and battery upon Henry Bryant, on the night of 23d [sic.] of April. On the following Monday, the following persons were arrested on the same charge. George Wells, Jacob McGlathery [Samuel Jacob McGlathery] , James Sawyers, J. P. Gillenwaters, Bose Pruitt, Whit Paine, Joseph Gillenwaters, Charles Neilson, and charles [sic.] Dobbins, Joseph Gillenwaters, Charles Neilson were unconditionally released, after a short detention. Messrs. Mitchell, Wells, McGlathery, Sawyers, S. P. Gillenwaters and Paine waived an examination before Commissioners Dodson and Abbott, and were discharged from custody upon giving bond for their appearance at the June term of the Federal Court to be held at Oxford in the June next. Messrs. Preuitt and Dobbins having declined to wave an examination are still under arrest, not having yet a hearing. We certainly hope all these young men will be able to prove themselves clear of this serious charge. As to their guilt or innocence, knowing nothing about the facts of the case, we are not prepared at present to express an opinion."

  • Newspaper, 26 NOV 1936: "....One of the most recent graves in the Greenwood Cemetery is that of Mrs. Margaret Elizabeth Brown McGlathery, mother of Pattie McGlathery and Mrs. S. L. Brister, Sr. At the time of her death, Mrs. McGlathery was one of Greenwood's oldest and best beloved citizens. She is buried in a beautifully kept plot beside her husband, Samuel James McGlathery [sic. Samuel Jacob McGlathery], a Confederate soldier, and five of their children.

    There are but a few of the Greenwood pioneers whose earthly remains lie at rest in the old cemetery. Back to the early days, before artesian wells were bored, before "the swamp" (as the delta was called by hill people), was drained, and before medical science had developed its skill the death rate in Greenwood was high. There is hardly an old Greenwood family that does not have some family member of its household resting in the Greenwood Cemetery. Much of the drama, comedy and the tragedy lie buried in "God's half acre," unknown or forgotten in the whirl of modern life."
    --from "Greenwood Pioneers Sleep In Spot Sacred To Memory"The Greenwood Commonwealth", 26 NOV 1936, p. 2.
