RUSHEN, TOM         (song/CHARLEY PATTON) d. 1990-0922, CLEVELAND,
MS  92


I worked with a newspaperman in Oxford (late 1980s) who said that his uncle was Tom Rushen and that Charlie Patton had written "High Sheriff" about him.

He said that no one had ever come around to interview him. He said that his uncle's memory was sharp and he had many stories about that period in the Delta.
