      Story from Audrey McGee Helbert:

      John caught Geneva with another man in a car and shot them both. The man in the car with Geneva died. Geneva did not die. Vince McGraw was the law man at the time and lived below Powell Palmer. Vince deputized Powell and a posse to go after John. After the shooting, John went to his son Walters to hide. Vince and the posse caught up to John and Vince shot and killed him. Clarence, Powell's son-in-law, did not talk to Powell for about 9 years because of this.
