David Taylor Gettys accepted this watch 82 years ago from a black man who wanted to right a wrong. The daughter and granddaughter of David Taylor Gettys now want to find that black man’s family – and give them his watch back.
“It is only right to find this family and give back the watch that paid the debt,” said Mary Stripling, 72, Gettys’ granddaughter. “Both men were honorable. They were on errands of honor.”
