Sutton-Taylor author speaks at library

 

The Cuero Public Library sponsored Chuck Parsons, author of “The Sutton–Taylor Feud: The Deadliest Blood Feud in Texas” on April 22 for their annual speaker night.
 
With standing room only, Parsons gave a presentation of the characters in the Sutton-Taylor feud to the 85 plus people that attended. Some of the audience identified themselves as family members of the Suttons or the Taylors peaceably and with some laughter.
 
Parsons briefly covered the time span of the feud, 30 years; the distance that the feud covered, as far north as Denton to the coast of Indianola, west into New Mexico and as far east starting in Georgia. He also covered the multiple families affected and had identified 83 men killed that were recorded.

Info of those buried at Clinton is requested

It is not about restoring what can’t be restored but to keep in memory of those who lived and died at the first county seat of DeWitt County, Clinton.

In 1985 the DeWitt County Historical Commission took it upon themselves to identify as many of the gravesides at the old Clinton cemetery. Most of the gravesides were identified. However, since then very few headstones exist. Many have disappeared or were destroyed. Iron fences, that surrounded the graveside, some are no longer present. Others have been disassembled, some with gates missing. 
 
Peggy Ledbetter, DCHC representative said, “There are many cemeteries like this but this was a city cemetery [that generated funds to maintain the cemetery].”
 
Since the city of Clinton no longer exists there are no funds to maintain the old cemetery.
