    My granddad Newell had a country store near Camp Hill Al . Every time my grandmother heard about Joe Louis she would fuss about the money his family owed on credit. He should have paid it off she would say. She didn’t know that he was broke and owed millions in taxes.

    Interesting, but I was told that he grew up near Camp Hill, AL, or as my father said, ” over on the other side of those woods.”

    I agree. Maybe he wasn’t born there. Aunt Julia always said the same. I think his house was punted out to us either by daddy or Aunt Julia.
