I heard alot of stories about Madison Illinois and Granite City Illinois.Also the chain of rocks area.I think that would be the Michell area.I heard that there were alot of gangster type guys from that area.In the 60.s and 70.s.I was wondering if anybody had any input.
My mom dated one of the guys in the 60's she said when they did wrong she was sent home....

There arent too many people like the old ruff guys anymore.This younger generation is into the UF stuff and most act like a bunch of bullys with no respect.

The 60's and 70's in Granite was some pretty wild times I think Book Writer has a lot of people he could write about Like Terry Tweet, The Wallace Brothers, Jerry Womack. James and Raymond English,Danny Fraley, Danny Shemwell,Robert and Steve Prince,Henry Murfey,Jimmy Poe, Mathis, and many more, Some Died young and some made in in to old age against the odds, I always liked hearing old stories about people, Lets get some names and stories together for the book writer and lets show some respect as they still have family members around
////i have got to agree with you im still a youngin myself but i do know the Womacks and Ray and James English....myslef im a Valencia and Thomas combined kid and i know it was still rough when i was a kid so i do agree!

Sorry Eric but you must not know much about Lincoln Place or its history. First of all most of the best boxers to come out of Granite City were mainly from Lincoln Place. Such as Joey "Yama Dog" Bacerra, Danny Mendoza, Paulie Bagosian, Mercy Mendoza, ect. And second, Lincoln Place boys have always been able to take care of themselves. And Lincoln Place has always had loyalty, honor, and brotherhood. Can you say the same for your neighborhood?
Danny Mendoza is my uncle and he was a pretty bad dude.....so was Terry Tweet

I remember a guy named Lavon Taylor back in the late 60's early 70's that was a tough dude. What became of him?
My 16 yr old grandson sent me to this website, told me his grandpas name was mentioned on here. He had alot of questions how his grandpa was known back in this era. I explained to him that he was a man with pride and always stood up for his family, country, and his self. It is as simple as that a wonderful man.
