Before the ship arrived, volunteer searchers aboard two fishing boats soon spotted a long trail of bubbling, yellow foam on the calm waters — but no wreckage. A squad of Royal Canadian Navy divers later failed to turn up any clues after a three-day scan of the harbour floor, according to official military records. Wickens, now president of the Shag Harbour UFO Society, will take part in a panel discussion Saturday that is expected to include Ralph Loewinger, one of the pilots aboard Pan Am Flight , a Boeing cargo aircraft that was at 33, feet that same night.

They saw the same row of flashing lights over the Gulf of Maine as they approached to coast of Nova Scotia. Loewinger and the other crew members never reported their sighting. Their story came to light about six years ago when Styles tracked them down. Everybody reported a plane crash. That gives a boost of credibility to the story. About 36 hours after the initial sightings, several Defence Department officials signed off on a memo that made it clear authorities had no idea what they were dealing with.

The space race was on and so was the Cold War. Russian submarines were known to frequent the East Coast. And the Americans were testing all manner of devices to spy on their communist foes, including crude spy satellites that ejected film canisters at high altitudes. When will we make contact with aliens? Not as soon as we once thought, study says. While the official records provide no explanation for what happened, there are vague clues pointing to another incident about 50 kilometres north, just off the coast of Shelburne.

At the time, the area was the location for a top-secret U. I was a bulldog with it back then. Also in , vigilante justice struck most heavily in neighboring Shelby County, where several persons were killed by vigilantes. The details of that Regulator-Moderator war would fill a book, brought stringent denunciations from President Sam Houston, and lack of space will allow no greater elaboration of it. At the end, twelve people, most of them innocent victims, were gunned down; free black families were stripped of their land and cattle; and thirty Mulatto families were driven permanently from the state.

Underlying causes of the violence were deeply rooted in racism, jealousies, and economics, but the immediate cause of the conflict was to account for the only legal execution in either Orange or Jefferson Counties prior to Sheriff Samuel Deputy as he rowed a boat on the Sabine River. Ashworth escaped capture for five years, and was subsequently killed at the Battle of Shiloh while he was in the Confederate Army. Bunch was captured and on a change of venue, was convicted and hanged at Beaumont in Nov.

In the fall of , Tom Magnes and G. If post-Civil War letters from this area were any indicator, the Reconstruction years saw no improvement, and if anything a worsening, in the volume of lawlessness and the general laxity of law enforcement. In , one letter, signed by 36 Beaumonters, warned all potential malefactors that any acts of resistance or violence against the U.

Government or its officers would not be countenanced, nor remain hidden, by the civilian populace. In May, , a letter, signed by 33 Orange County citizens, read as follows: Only the Orange County district court minutes for might reveal if any of the Stephenson murderers were ever caught, for most area newspapers, including those of Galveston and Houston, did not survive for that year.

On April 8, , Turner Ardasal, who was alleged to have been an Italian ship captain, raped and murdered Mrs. John Jett and her two children who lived near Orange. Ardasal was captured by neighbors as he attempted to burn the bodies of his victims.

The sheriff, George W. Michael, was a popular, efficient, and brave officer, but he had acquired a few enemies as a result of his upholding the law and corralling the saloon rowdies, one of whom was a white man named Charles Delano.

During the resulting affray, both Sam Saxon and Michael were severely wounded, the latter with buck shot, but the sheriff miraculously recovered. For a week, the town was under martial law, patrolled by Capt.

Norsworthy and his militia company of Orange Rifles, and several white and black families again deserted the county permanently. In September, , Sheriff J. Fennell of Orange was killed while attempting to arrest a railroad transient, Dave Anderson, who was wanted on a murder warrant from Tennessee. The city marshal and a posse tracked down the killer and lodged him in the county jail.

Between and , Orange County finally succeeded in executing on the gallows its first two men convicted of murder and condemned to death. On January 15, , Jefferson County executed its second condemned man, Bill Madison, a young Negro convicted of killing an elderly black logging contractor, Elbert Smith, during a dispute over wages.

In February, , a Port Arthur mob, supposedly friends of the victim, hanged Peter Sweeney, a white man, to a telephone pole after the man had already been acquitted by a jury of his peers in Beaumont. And well within the memories of many persons still alive, an incited and vengeful mob at Honey Island, Hardin County, lynched a young black man about Lynch law was a holdover from frontier days before state or territorial governments were organized and no elected law enforcement officers existed.

Unfortunately, due to rural and racial attitudes, it lingered on in many areas for decades after any need for it may have existed. Perhaps it is too early to predict that that unsavory institution is gone forever, particularly when some individuals and vigilante-prone organizations seem to esteem vigilante misrule as preferable to all constitutional avenues of justice.

Some Redbone families are listed among Negro slave owners. This breeding became such a common breeding practice in the 18th century, so much so there were laws and notices enacted to stop the practice. The offspring of these unions become a caste worth of white watchfulness. Slavery follows the maternal lineage.

Weaver, Cooper, Banks surname to name the few we suspect. Hunted and haunted by their dark complexion and swarthy appearance the Redbones migrated westward into uncharted territories as encroaching European settlers pushed through the wildernesses imposing racial integrity and miscegenation laws. Society encourages homogony marriage between people who are alike with regard to race, ethnicity, religion social class background through informal norms, and in some cases, formal norms laws.
