Storyteller Martha Donaldson

It was a full room at the public library last night as people gathered to hear Mrs. Donaldson relate the story of the Pea Patch Murders that took place in Waresboro in 1930. The story was quite different from what I was expecting. Jim Parker was living with his girlfriend as husband and wife. His wife and baby came to visit then disappeared. He had said that his visitor was a cousin of the "pretend" wife and had returned home to Florida so no one suspected anything.

One day you may get to hear Martha's fascinating story so I will not reveal any more details.
