No but I do remember talk of a man named Angel (Last Name) was shot at pops in the 50's or 60's after a car race and was shot over title to a car or something like that I believe. The Angel man was a friend of my father.

Yes I do now remember part of what Tate done. My hubby was telling me the other night that it was a Lawson that hit someone but didn't rmember all details. I think Tate did serve some time for the crime but not enought. I will do some reserch to see what I find on it.

But my point of this post is to let him know that I do forgive him,as jesus commanded us to do. I do forgive but am sad for Bucks grandchildren who never got to meet him.

I belive it was in 1954. I Heard about it the day after it happened. The name he went by was Whitey. Whitey Angel raced his cousin from Pops to the old Pops place on Route 52. His cousin ran out of gas. So Whitey won. After a argument the cousin left and returned with a .22 rifle. He opened the front door, saw Whitey sitting in a booth that was next to the counter. He shot Whitey several times in the head.

Didnt Jim Vaughters go into pops to sell a gun and it accidently went of when he layed in down on the table killing a man? Jim did some time for it i beleive.

It in the Pool Hall (Luke's I think) behind the Melody Drive Inn. Not Pop's. Luke was hit in the back of the head. The bullet traveled to the front of the Skull, Luke blead to death. Jim Vaughters served 1 year in Ohio State Pen. It was 1951 or 1952.

Bud Cantrell killed an Angel man in the late 50's or 60's in Pops after a drag race. He spent 20 or more years in prison for that crime. Got out and lived the rest of his life in Franklin Furnace where he was from.

That would have been Bud Cantrell that shot the man. Spent years in the pen. I think he has been dead now for years

I went to school with the son of Mr. Lawson and I believe they are a good family...I really think it was an accident... I remember my mom went to school with Mr. Lawson and it was said that it was just a fight that went wrong. I'm sure when he grabbed that ketchup bottle he wasn't expecting to take a life...that is such a sad situation for both families. sorry for your loss.
