Tom It would be interesting to know who, what, where, etc regarding this event. My "relatives" in this area were the Hammonds, Roberts, Mullens, Stanleys, Baldwins, Workmans, etc-I would guess some of knew or where there when Tom Reed was killed. I have no knowledge of a book written.
Kenos was supposed to have stood trial for this murder ...I was able to obtain from the Greenbrier Co Courthouse several years ago the transcript of the trial where the Workmans killed the Baldwin - you might contact the courthouse to see the availability of the Douglas-Reed Trial records.
I would be very interested in anything you would be willing to share. Millie@mtec.net
