WYNN I am desperately seeking information on a murder that took place in Hampton County, SC. The subject was Walker Addison ("W.A.") Wynn who died 1/1/52. He was shot in a bar by the bartender named "Crews" (apparently) and died on the way to Fairfax Hospital. No one was ever arrested, tried, or prosecuted in this death. There have been rumors that the death was not an accident.  He left behind two small children, Rita Darlene born 5/10/51 and Don Walker Wynn (who was 25 months at the time), deceased. WA's widow was my grandmother, Mary Verdine Avant Wynn. She apparently left him for another man in Columbia, SC (rumored to be Edgar Roy Moss who was in the US Army and had a child named Marie Annette Moss born 1/10/53).  Mary Verdine took WA's life insurance money and left. She has not contacted her children by WA or my mother or uncles, who she had with a man named Eugene Troy Nichols between 1942-46 (see my web page).  My family would like to find my grandmother. We have reason to believe that if we can find out more information regarding the death of WA Wynn, then there may be some clues to her location.ANY information you may be able to provide will be appreciated. Thank you very much for your time.  9 Sept. 2006 Allison Davidson
