    News Excerpt

    "The Corbin Times-Tribune"
    The Corbin Times-Tribune, Page 3, Col. 2, Friday, Nov 21, 1930
    KNOX MAN, 70, IS FREED IN SLAYING
    Barbourville, Ky- Nov. 18, 1930
    William Bailey, 70-year-old retired farmer, and large landholder
    of Knox County, was acquitted today on a charge of killing Ramsey Smith
    ,
    20, a tenant on one of Bailey's farms. Bailey's plea of self-defense.
    Testimony showed Smith to have been the aggressor in a quarrel
    growing out of the division of crops. The two men were related.
    At a previous trial of Bailey, a jury was unable to agree.
    ~
    Family's Version:
    Floyd "Ramsey" Smith was murdered by Willian on 03 Oct 1928.

    The murder was actually over a black man, but "Old Bill" was found
    not guilty because people were afraid to convict him.
