SURNAMES: THE NIGHT RIDERS OF PICKENS COUNTY
QRYTEXT: Could anyone give me the names of the men who were arrested for involvement with the vigilante group "The Honest Man's Friend and Protector", which was referred to as the HMF&P. Information I have is there were seven men arrested and tried in 1890. I would like to know the names of these individuals, as it is possible my great grandfather may have been involved with the group. John Turner left GA circa 1889 and indicated to family later in life he had to leave GA. I found information on this vigilante group in The Night Riders of Pickens County by Robers S. Davis, Jr.., very facinating reading. Thanks for any information.
