Thomas Jefferson's Ties to Starkville?!

The Golden Rule of Genealogy says that: "There is no truth without proof."   While oral history is important, documenting your family history is even more important.  Don't just take someone's word that an event happened, try to substantiate their claim with a paper trail.  Recently, I've been spending a lot of time perusing old newspapers. 

In fact, some of the articles have left me speechless.  Don't believe me?  Check out my first entry under Starkville: Believe it or Not!
