I am looking for any details on a murder that occurred in Overton County, Tennessee in the Hogeye community during the 1930's. All I know for certain is that there were at least 3 men involved in the killing including a Huckeby, Winningham and Dodson. They murdered a Holbert couple and possibly some of their children. Any help appreciated.

They are at least 2 maybe 3 newspaper stories covering this in the old Livingston Enterprise papers. I have saw these articles before and may have copies of them. If not they can be copied from the microfilm.

Hope this is what you were wanting or looking for.

Thanks for all the information I have been receiving about this murder. I know for certain that one of the murderers was Talmadge Huckeby. He died in 1976 and is buried at the Smith Cemetery in Pickett County, Tennessee. I also knew that the daughter of the victim still survives. I really would like to know the first names of the other two men along with any specific details of the murder. Also, for anyone who wants to contact me directly, I have just recently received a photo of the three men and the sheriff who arrested them. Any help appreciated.

Talmadge Huckeby was my great uncle. I would like to see the photo you mentioned if possible.
