Does anybody know anything about Ku Klux Klan activity in Chillicothe or Livingston County in the last century?

Get ahold of one of those Livingston Country news history books published 4 or 5 years ago. Had several articles. Even the ministers were encouraging membership in the 1920s. I had a KKK figureine come into my pawn shop. It was dated 1929. Guy that brought it in said it was his fathers. Chillicothe, being a border area, no doubt has a colorful past, but I am too new here to have any family history.

Yes the same book sold by the C-T. My grandfather used to tell stories that Chula had an active KKK group many years ago.

Thanks. I have just discovered a distant relative's husband from years ago may have been part of it and wanted to know more. Someone else I know swears he saw Kluxers on horseback on Cherry Street late one night in the late 50s. And an elderly man said there was a clan group north of town, so that would tie in with the Chula thing. Anybody else got any info?

I am not. I am just a person interested in my family history. Are you? Maybe some of the other responders are????

I did read the articles in the LivCoMo history books. Both from 1922. Reported a big meeting at the Renraw park theater of many local business men and a speech by a Methodist minister from St Joseph called "one of the best one hundred per cent American addresses ever delivered in Chillicothe." I am inferring from that the reason I could find nothing in the C-T archives must have been because they were pro-KKK.

Anybody know?

Naw, never joined. The Gladstone group sent me some literature once. I was afraid I would get claustraphobia (sp) with a pillow case over my head. It is a big misconception that KKK is all about race. They were formed to resist the carpetbaggers looting the South after the Civil War. Groups like that tend to attract radicals that get out of hand. Black Panthers are the same on the other side. Racist hate mongers. No need for that crap, black or white.

Blacks have no common sense in this town. Blacks breaks rules, steals, lies about it, breaks rules set forth in housing, no concept of tact, pops out dem little negras or half breeds for tax payers to foot the bill. Doesn't work, bit ches about not having money, goes to bars to spend their non existent money. Thats right! They deal drugs, smoke their sh it in front of their little negra welfare kids and wonders why the world isn't handing them what they think they deserve. Then we have the white boys walkin around acting stupid....wanna be's called wiggers. Think it's cool to a walk around like they have a cob stuck in thier azz. Dummies I tell you, no clue they are fools.
