I'm just sorry that I have to give that witch any notoriety here. But that is who this is about isn't it? I remember my Grandpa prophesying over her
once when he was angry at her. He told her, "Inez, You're going to go down one of these days! And these poor old black folks you're messing over,
are the very ones that's going to be, that do it! And this hell-hole you're living in is going to burn to the ground! They'll try to build it back,
but it will burn to the ground again! Now, you just mark my words, 'cos it will be just like I'm telling you!"
I remember hearing her laugh and saying, "Oh Dick, now you know better than all that!" But she did look a little uneasy. But moving right along. The
way that Inez was entangled with witchcraft, the black folks and false pretenses was like this. She knew certain superstitious black folks in
Lincolnton convinced that as a witch, she had special powers to keep their sons alive in Viet Nam, and I think a few other things as well. All of this
came for a price of course.
Things came to a head in about 1969, I believe. Black people weren't faring very well at that time. What little money they came by was hard. And this
she-devil was over there robbing them blind. They got to the point that they couldn't pay anymore or something, I don't really know for sure what
brought it all to a head, but to retaliate for non-payment, Inez was scattering something in their yards (knowing most of them were barefoot), and it
was burning their feet.
Finally, an outcry from the black community got things rolling. Officials in Lincoln County kinda wanted to do something about her anyway, but she
always slid through a loophole. Or she had something on somebody, more like it, my guess!
