                    Notes for JOHN H. ISOM BLACK:
     Isom Black told his grandson, John Lafayette Horn, that
he would sell molasses to the moonshiners in Calhoun County. 
They had their still deep in the woods behind the Turkey Creek
Baptist Church, and he would have to take his molasses to the 
top of the hill, and roll it down to them.  This way he did'nt 
know exactly where the still was, and he could'nt turn them in.

     a fit until he went back to town and returned them.

	Viola Horn died of a Brain Tumor at the Baptist

     the hospital after she complained of severe headaches 
     for some time. In those days the hospital would'nt let
     you stay the night in a room with a patient, so Tom 
     rented a room nearby, and when he went to the hospital 
     the next morning, he was told that Viola had died. They
     told him that they had found her in the floor dead with 
     a hole in her head.  He never found out what really
     happened to her.
