Has anyone heard of stories concerning Breathitt Co. My granny use to say it was worse than the Hatfields and Mccoys. She would walk down the street and bodies laying all over the street. Contact me at melissa_fb@yahoo.com

My dad was born in Breathitt County, and he said it was a pretty rowdy place even in the 30s and 40s. Blood feuds were not at all uncommon. But, the reason I'm posting a response is that I noticed you have Davis in your surname list. Which Davises are you from. Can you forward your parents, grandparents and greats for me please? My grandma, Effie Davis Watkins, was the daughter of William C. and Ellie Catherine Thompson Davis; the granddaughter of Levi Davis; gr.granddaughter of Henry and Cela ? Davis. Please respond. We may be cousins!!!

Tressie Davis was my grandmother married to John Lindon.
Her father was Letcher Davis married to "Kitty" Katherine Kimberlin. He remarried after Kitty passed away to Mary Walters Kind. His father was also Letcher and Mother Nancy Bowling. His mother was Patsy Edwards and father Hiram Davis. Does this sound familiar?
Thanks for the response
Melissa

Melissa,
I was wondering who was the parents of your Patsy Edwards. I am searching Edwards from Breathitt, Owsley and Perry Co. Thanks.

I am sorry but I can't give you an immediate answer. I don't have any parents listed for her. I did a general search on rootsweb. I did see a lot of Patsy Edwards listed but can't be 100% which one may be her. If I come up with anything I will keep you in mind.
