I am searching for my great, great, grandfather, Curtis Columbus Wright who was a large scale/wholesale bootlegger in the early 1900s. As the family story goes, he also murdered a man aroung 1912 over a domestic dispute. His name appears in The Georgia Black Book: Morbid, Macabre & Sometimes Disgusting Records of Genealogical Value, but there is no other information. He was born in 1872 and died in 1926 in Quittman County as far as I can tell. He was married to Johnnie Thomas.
