The story of Joe Trammel is one I have visited before in this column. Along with George Welsh and Jefferson Hastings, he was charged with the murder of an Oconee farmer by the name of Morris.
Robbery was the motive, but a little killing didn’t seem to upset Joe Trammel, as he fired through a window, shooting John Morris in the head as he sat "at table."
Truths retained in the old family stories handed down from generation to generation never cease to amaze me. Finding supporting facts that bear out these stories is something else.
