does anybody know who wrote this book based in wayne county in 1964,it tells the true story of the fbi setting up the county line inn on the wayne county jones county line,it was a juke joint near strengthford exit with alll the tables bugged to get info on the mafia of mississippi.mafia stood for mississippians against forced intergration assoc. it has several people in wayne mentioned like ralph stanley,luther giles,the lowerys from hiwannie, alex and auther alexander from frost bridge who controleed and made all the moonshine for the mafia.it tells of the sheriff taking money on all illegal whiskey,local politicians who were on the take.the local, ku klux klan is all in this book,a local fbi agent named clinton moody is mentioned.the klan attempted to blow up the county line inn and were overheard on the bugs an thwarted.several people in shubuta were mentioned houston duval, je toney, pappa hair who was a lowery.talks in detail about mafia member ralph stanley an the stanley merchantile store in winchester.seems the same mafia in wayne today are members of this same organization that used the klan for the dirty work of making illegal money.the book can be found in a online google search"the mafia of mississippi"after talking to a few stanleys there is no doubt that this story is true but noone knows who sold the story.does anybody know what happened to clinton moody fbi agent from hiwannie that helped work this case against his neighbors in hiwannie?the book is written by a dan adrian

Madman, I did a google search and I came to this interesting website that has excerpts from the book or it maybe the whole book itself, I've read a little so far and it's interesting. I had no idea that Waynesboro actually had the Feds come in!! Then again I shouldn't be too surprised with what I've read so far. Well, anyway here's the website address:

i've read the whole book lil birdy.its very very interesting.and from talking to a few stanley relatives,they confirm that its a true story,i posted this hoping someone knows who sold this story.because it seems the familys werent contacted to get permission to use there decesed relatives names.this mafia that is discussed is the same one that is alive to this day in wayne an the rest of mississippi.according to the book mafia stood for mississippians against forced intergration association.the storys of shubuta an the hayes quaters an the stanley merchantile store in winchester and alex and auther alexander, really caught my attention.its well known in wayne county that mr alexander ran all the moonshine in the area, and the sheriff made sure of that to get his cut of the money.we are talking 1960s now not the present sheriff.he sold aged whiskey an straight run "rot gut moonshine unaged".the club in the book the county line inn was an old white mansion on the jones an wayne county line,but untill this book was published i dont believe anybody knew it was opened by the fbi to get info on local mafia activiteys.it was thought around here that the new york mafia opened it.the sheriff an the jones county sheriff tried to close it down but had no luck.i believe the local fbi agent from wayne county discussed in the book must have told the story,an i bet this is a shocker to those who knew this stuff an the local politicians an local mafia who were involved,to have it so openly discused in this book.a few names were mispelled by one sylable i believe because they may still be alive.but from what ive been told the vast majority of this book is true.

I noticed the misspelling of the names too at first I thought it was a mistake on the writer's part then I came to the same conclusion that some names were misspelled because some of those people might still be alive. If one didn't know any better they would think it's a fiction crime story but there are a lot of places named in the book that I know of so that proved to me it can't be fiction. I'm a young person and I've heard through the years that there was a "mafia" in Waynesboro but I always that was just ridiculous that the very idea of something of the sort would be in a small rural community. I'm so young that I've never heard of the County Line Inn or it's never been mentioned while I was growing up. What I've read so far is interesting and to think that this kind of corrupt behavior is still present is even more amazing. The "mafia" that the book is referring to is still active? Do you think that with their beliefs that they would still be as powerful as they were then? A lot has changed since the 60's and there are people around that are against integration still? No wonder Waynesboro can't flourish like other cities, such as Laurel and Meridian. I remember how there was a big stink when Walmart first came here. I'm all for helping our local businesses but the way some of them carried on about Walmart went to show how greedy they were. I'm sorry to go on a rant and it maybe off-topic but I think it is relevant. I think the story could be sold if the person that sold it can show proof that these events took place with the people named. So, I come to the conclusion that one of the agents had to have sold the story since they would have access to all the files, records and recordings.

p.s.
It would make a great movie, they can change the names so it won't effect any relatives.

The above statement is at the top fo the page so that indicates to me that this is fiction. We never had a governor Lowder. BS flag

I did a search and there was no mention of a Senator Massey or Matthews ever in office in Mississippi, I noticed that they (maybe the author or writer) kept going back and forth to referring to the Senators last name that's what made me do the search and the ending did sound a little like a twist, which was also suspect. Well, whoever came up with this story is very familiar with Wayne County, rather fact or fiction.

all of the people in wayne an clarke counties mentioned are real,the story is real just had some fiction thrown in.if u are gonna mention folks names whos are u gonna mention some moonshiners in wayne or the govenor.the club mentioned the county line inn was very real an the talk of hangmans bridge is well known in this area an is very much true.the folks who are older like me know that all this said about wayne county is true,just hearing some stranger write about it is shocking!some of the people mentioned were so powerful in this area there names are still not discussed or this subject matter to this day.dont know about some of the book but the stuff about the wayne cou nty people is very much true so are the people mentioned

Madman, you made a good point about naming moonshiners and not naming the big players. One thing I did hear about growing up was hangman's bridge, that's why I said fact or fiction, this person knows Waynesboro.

That's on her if she was involved with this so called "mafia", from what I read this is nothing compared to that. PLEASE get a life and quit trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill, just accept that this is what it is and nothing more. I'm so tired of people bringing off-topic subjects to a forum that has nothing to do with their own agenda. Waynesboro people are just so sad with their little conspiracy theories and gossip. Mississippi is one of the most corrupt states in the Union so there's no surprise when shit like this happens there are people that want to point the blame at someone else instead of accepting the truth.

Some of that sounds true but I heard stories too the feds were in on all the moonshine bust and those in mention were not the only ones doing it just the ones that got caught lol and a notorious named family wasnt mentioned so he obviously has some misconstrued info and needs to brush it up but i would buy it :)

i think once we turn the dogs loose there will fewer drugs in wayne county. and that will be benificial to all citezens. If your a thug like kieth cooley you will certainly be brought low. justic will always prevail. If you break the law you will pay dearly. There will be no place to hide. We are a new generation of people who will not tolerate lawlessness.

snoop, i think u got the wrong forum. and if ur a cop, then that statement is funny, as we all know what cops moved into big houses when crack became king of wabo, I imagine with the change in sheriff the wide open drug business will now slow down. Maybe, maybe not. It aint no secret in wabo that the narcs make lots of money off the drug trade they protect. since ur a state drug agent from leakesvile, maybe u dont know how crooked the wabo cops are, yall need to head to the big houses an high up people if yall ever gonna stop the drug trade in wayne county, locking up the low level dealers aint fooling nobody. and it aint no pharmicist named cooley that has allowed crack to infest wabo like cockroaches. it is very funny u chose to put this post in the mafia of MS post, because we all know its the wayne county mafia that runs dope, and used there badges to protect it. yall state boys aint got a clue, it starts at the top in wayne county, check out attorneys, judges, cops who have huge houses on little salarys, any office that holds power and so on, new generation of people!!! lol!! get real. u just a pawn in the game till yo master moves u. Follow the Money fool.

This is a true story with a little twist to it just like any other book. What your reading online is not the whole book. The book hasn't even come out yet. But to answer some of your questions its 80 % true the club set half wayne half jones. The walters family from beat four just bought the land and are building on it. They find things out there all the time that was dropped from the club. Houston duvall from shubuta was the meanest sob around all of that is true. 100%

Trbh.....there is no such mafia in mississippi.... everyone thinks that there is this white group of men in power in mississippi that run as mafia. Mississippi mafia was fbi agents. Read mississippi mud..... the coastal mafia was italians. The whites in mississippi are scared to wipe there ass in the dark how in the hell do you think they could form a mafia. Those days are over buddy! Yes men in power do favors for each other but running a mafia takes balls and men who know how to zip it when the heat is on..... lol..... good luck on finding your mafia around here. The black community own the smuggling of anything illegal. They own the gambling houses. And its been that way since the 80's. Try being white and do either or and you will be indicted so quick you will still have your first dollar from it. What happen to the old hard core whites from the south???? SAD SITUATION
