I wanted to share this newspaper article, the story of Christopher Columbus Chambliss with the community. Location: Stateline Community, Mississippi. Date: June 10, 1892. I have heard rumors of this in my family, and thought it was all just folklore. I never knew my paternal grandparents or great grandparents. I have worked for the courts all my life, and never been prosecuted by them, thankfully. The Chambliss descendants that I have met in recent years are outstanding citizens, also.
