This research into Lafayette county and Oxford has been very interesting and at times disturbing. The history of the area winds together and many different stories are emerging that play a part in the story of Chief Toby Tubby that I am researching.
I decided to visit William Faulkner to get some information. He is usually on the square, sitting on a bench in front of the old Post Office smoking a pipe in the afternoons. We had a long talk, (he talks a lot in one sentence), and he gave me some pointers and information that got me going on the right track again.
