    From "Memiors of Hattie Ellen Taylor Redus
    March 29, 1954

    "Father Redus' two uncles, Jimmy and Miller Redus were hanged by the Tories because they thought they had money. Uncle Jimmy was alone at the old "Grandma" Ward place. Mr. Mose Denman and a black man went next day, cut the rope and took his body down, burying it in his garden on planks. Later he was moved to Mt. Nebo Cemetery. A note on a tree by his body said "Death to anyone who took him down." Mr. Denman, a brave man, risked his life to bury him. The same night Uncle Miller Redus was with his two girls at the old "Combs" place and he was hung also. Lucy and Jennie were threatened as they tried to hold their father. One Tory slung one of the girls off the porch by her hair. One girl stayed by his body while the other went and got Sis Pennington to go miles in the night to get help to take their father down. Most all of the men were gone to war. Mr. Pennington was hanged. Mr. Guin and wife found him hanging in the woods. I can remember both Lucy and Jenny Redus. They married Penningtons and brought their families often to Furnace Church."
