    In an article by Harry Noble about "Honky-Tonks" in the November 7, 2002 edition of the SAN AUGUSTINE TRIBUNE, the following story appeared about the Suzy-Q, on Highway 8, halfway between Ford's Corner and Rosevine. It was operated by Lloyd Jones and his brother Bluford. "On a hot Saturday night, July 15, 1939, the jukebox was blaring, boots were scooting across the dance floor and beer caps were being popped with regularity. Rubus Price JOHNSON, thirty-one years of age and the son of E. Rufus (Bud) JOHNSON and Sally (Sumiter) JOHNSON, came in looking for his wife. He found her in a booth with Lott CONN. An argument developed and CONN, armed with a pistol, fired. JOHNSON fell, mortally wounded. During the trial for first degree murder, John WILLIAMS, who lived less than a half mile from the CONN family was called to testify. Odd as it might seem, being called as a witness for the State provided WILLIAMS an opportunity to obtain a measure of retribution. A little more than fifteen years earlier, on a Monday night in 1923, Lott C. CONN had committed aggravated assault against WILLIAMS, striking and bruising him with a hammer causing "....serious bodily injury." Evidently, Williams didn't take advantage of the situatioin, for while under cross examination he was asked what he saw, and replied that he didn't see anything. He was reminded he was in full view of the shooting, and asked again how he couhd have seen nothing. In a stentorian voice WILLIAMS replied, "I didn't see nothin' because I was drinking beer and eatin'  tator slips." The courtroom buzzed with laughter. The Suzy-Q is gone now, not even a trace of foundation is left."
