Fading Away -- Jayne's Mill on the Bogue Chitto River

This gem is from an old newspaper owned by Bettie Hatcher Cox.  She graciously allowed Deenie Tallant to scan in this and other interesting historical accounts of Brookhaven, MS.  My sincere thanks to both of them for allowing me to share this on Sippiana.

One note: Samuel Jayne was from Long Island, New York.

  1. How can we access that Bicentennial Scrapbook? I remember Matthew Ard quite well. He was our next door neighbor. Owned the Dr. Pepper bottling the alley between Benoit's and the jewelry store. A lifelong bachelor. In retrospect, he would likely have been outed in another era.
