Also, please remember James McPherson from Rockingham. Died during Vietnam in 1968. He and my late husband were in basic training together- Fort Bragg.

Somewhere I read earlier that Maceo received call at work from his Mom to come home. Maceo told coworkers that he had to leave and go check on her because she was ill. Was his Mom forced to make that call by her killer? She was a beautiful,sweet lady. Heartbreaking story.

I cannot imagine anyone swimming at Boyd's Lake at night. Every time I swam out to that diving board I felt like there were water snakes all over the place. I know they lived under that platform. Regardless of all that, I think Boyd's Lake was one of my favorite places in Hamlet. I loved that place....
