On the Doorstep: Spending time with old friends
I rode to Moon Lake one day last week to help a newspaper friend – who’s become just a friend – lay his wife to rest. I rarely get out of the town of Tunica these days anyway, and it’s been even longer since I drove the old road that loops around the edge of the lake.
Ray Mosby is a native Coahoma Countian and worked for many years at the Press Register in Clarksdale, before buying the weekly in Rolling Fork and moving to the South Delta.
But his roots are still deep up north. The little Montroy family cemetery was established in 1837 along the Coahoma-Moon Lake Road by Ray’s ancestors. Ray told me that the original Montroy and the original Friar (as in Friars Point) came down the river together from St. Louis and set up homesteads just a few miles apart.
