Edward Tillman Branch, Buried in Seneasha Cemetery, Attala County, Mississippi

My post on Mississippi Memories today features an excerpt from Stokes McMillan's new book, "One Night of Madness," that contains some details about the life of Edward Tillman Branch. Born on November 15, 1901, Tillman, as Branch was known, met a tragic death when he died of a gunshot wound on April 14, 1963.
