An old lady by the name of Sarah Carrier was the house maid of the Taylor household was there the time Mrs. Taylor cheated on her husband.

They went around killing every black person that got in their way. Some of the time they didn’t have to get in their way if they didn’t tell them what they wanted to hear.
