Good Morning,
While doing research on the feudists of Eastern Kentucky; I found this site:
Chris's Genealogy Collage:
http://www.users.kih.net/~chrisfleming/
On one of the pages linked to this site it is listed that the Red Fox was Marshall B. Taylor.
Does anyone know if this is correct?
Thank you,
Ramona

Marshall Benton Taylor's nickname was indeed The Red Fox. He is the model for the character called Red Fox in John Fox, Jr.'s novel, "The Trail of the Lonesome Pine", although not everyone agrees that Taylor was the bugged-eyed madman that the novel describes. For those interested in another perspective on Marshall Benton Taylor, I highly recommend the play, "Red Fox/Second Hangin'". A video of the play is available from appalshop.org. Doc Taylor is my great, great, great grandfather.

Hi Gary,

I recently found out about Doc Taylor from my Aunt who has done loads of research on our family history. My grandma's maiden name is Griffith and was born in Oregon. Her name is Barbara. What an interesting story! I have really started to get interested in finding out more about my family history/heritage and what an amazing story about Doc Taylor. Anyway, just stumbled upon your name under this question about Doc Taylor and saw that your name was Griffith. Thought that was pretty cool!

Hi Sarah, I think that your grandmother is my dad's first cousin. My dad's father was Cecil Griffith, and I think he had a brother named Henry who lived in Oregon. I might have his name wrong, but I definitely remember my dad talking about Barbara Griffith. Unfortunately, my dad died last year, so I can't check with him. Regardless, the Doc Taylor saga is incredibe, to say the least. My dad and I went to Wise, VA about 5 years ago and met a bunch of kin, who took us to Killing Rock. Have you seen the dvd "Red Fox/Second Hangin"? Write to me at garygriffith66208@yahoo.com.

Can someone help me with this...was M B Taylor married at one time to Rebecca Mullins b. 1855, d/o Basil Mullins...or did he just have children by her...some info says two children....what is strange is that Amanda Mullins, b. 1857, Rebecca's sister has a child named Marshall, b. 1879, no father listed,...rumor in our family is that the child's given name was Marshall Benton Mullins, but later changed it to Jonce...Jonce is rumored to have been killed by Carlton Boggs in 1923...possible fued over moonshine..in or around Wise, Va...thanks

Michelle, if by "you have 5 answers" you mean Ramona Woods, the poster of the original query in 2001, only the first reply was really to her question, and the second reply is FROM Ramona, acknowledging that reply.

The remaining 3 responses in the thread are a tangential conversation between the responding Gary Griffith and two others who had a connection to the Griffith surname. There would have been no reason for Ramona to continue to participate in the thread.
