520    Between 1885 and 1894 The Montgomery Advertiser, The 
       Birmingham-Age Herald, and The New Orleans Times Democrat 
       featured a series of about 80 humorous black-dialect 
       sketches by Robert Wilton Burton, a bookseller and writer 
       from Auburn, Alabama.  According to Burton, these tales 
       were based on various characters in the black community of
       Auburn, and 36 of them were devoted exclusively to a 
       character called "Marengo Jake."  Probably originally from
       Virginia, Jake Mitchell was brought to the Drake 
       Plantation in Marengo county as a boy in the 1850's.  
       After the Civil War, the Drake family moved to Auburn and 
       many former slaves followed, forming a fairly large 
       expatriate Marengo County community.  The theme of the 
       stories, usually related by Jake, centers on the 
       superiority of all things from Marengo County, especially 
       over those in Lee County, in which Auburn is located
