For the most part, some of the facts are correct, except, when in other stories, when they try to say that my GGG.Grandfather Dr.D.H.Boult was in partners with the Clan.They will say that he robbed and killed also that he even burned down the courthouse. From the newspaper accounts of that time. You will here words like, suspected, implicated, accused, rummored, associated with....etc. When Mclaughlin ordered the ferryman to stay put, "Boult complied". In two accounts of the story when Boult later returned to the other side, he was shot and killed. Was he then going to join the clan??? Not! This was not a Boult family member killed but one of his slaves that ran the ferry. Dr. Boult was a Union sympathizer for which he could have no affiliation with the west-kimbrell clan. They were against all that Boult stood for. Lt Butts was a family friend of the Boults.The local (yellow journalism) newspaper was quick to vilify Dr. Boult for his union sympathies. Your further research of the editor will tell the whole story.
