The Jeffersonville Branch of the Ku Klux Klan:

This week, we published information concerning the criminal activities of William Branham's mentor, Roy E. Davis, and included a substantial amount of evidence to suggest that his "teacher" was in fact the Imperial Wizard (top leader) of the Ku Klux Klan. For any who missed it:

After realizing that research presents a strong possibility that William Branham was directly connected to the Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, one has to ask the question, "Why little Jeffersonville?"

When thinks about the Ku Klux Klan, they typically imagine white hoods in the Southern states of the U.S. such as Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. Indiana is a northern state, not usually associated with race riots.

But the Ku Klux Klan was very active in Southern Indiana. During the time Davis was in Indiana, the Klan was very active. According to newspaper articles published in 1922, Jeffersonville Indiana was home to about 800 Klansmen -- and this would not include the numbers in the surrounding cities or across the river in Louisville, KY.

The timing of Davis' arrival to the area is also highly suspect. A very powerful political figure named David C. Stephenson was arrested in 1925 on five criminal charges. One of those charges was the assault of Madge Oberholtzer. When Oberholtzer died, Stephenson was sentenced to life in prison. The Indiana Klan was without a leader.

Studying the criminal trail of Roy E. Davis raises an eyebrow to even the most devout follower of William Branham. Fleeing Kentucky law enforcement for his past crimes, his sudden creation of an entire church and congregation is highly suspect. How was he able to pull this off? How did he meet William Branham? Was Branham aware of Davis' criminal activity when he became an elder in his church? When Davis fled Indiana, why did William Branham still speak so highly of Davis?

From an outsider looking into this situation, it would seem obvious to form an opinion that Branham held some secret devotion to Roy E. Davis. Otherwise, associating with him would create quite a scandal for a Pentecostal minister.

Was his devotion that of a high-level Klansman to the Imperial Wizard?
