    Arlie Pierce was the husband of my great aunt, Lyda Mearl Brown. 
    They had a farm in Waltham County, MS. I wonder if the stolen calves were returned.

    Thaniel Hill, alias Bud Hill, who pleaded guilty to an indictment of grand larceny by cattle theft, was sentenced to one year in the penitentiary and three years probation. Dist. Atty. Joe Pigott said Hill admitted guilt in stealing three calves from Arlie Pierce on Jan. 9, 1968.
