#YeahThatGreenville is the official slogan of a city with southern charm and a congenial reputation. But the beauty of the Reedy River Falls cannot cover up its secret past. Theodosia Burr Alston regularly summered in Greenville prior to being “lost at sea” in 1812. Rival newspaper editors Benjamin Perry and Turner Bynum faced off in a fatal duel in 1832. Hugh Bramlett murdered his mother-in-law in 1919, before it was revealed that insanity populated his family tree. Genealogical researcher Jennifer Stoy presents uncovered tales of mayhem, insanity and a side of Greenville you didn’t know existed.
