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

The Greenbrier Historical Society, Lewisburg, has newpaper clippings of the Reed/Douglas murder. The Greenbrier Courthouse does not have any information on the trial. Douglas was convicted and sentenced to life in Moundsville. He was paroled in 1899, after approx. 4 years.

Thank you! Keenas married in 1900 - he and Mahala are in 1900 Webster Co WV - not located in 1910 (there is a Keenas M. Douglas b.ca1866 in the St of Washington in 1910) Mahala is widowed by the 1920 Nicholas Co Census. Mahala died 1949 and buried at the Baldwin Cemetery, Would you have any idea when Keenas deceased or where he is buried?
Can you help with inf on Isabella Stanley who married Thomas Reed? Thank you again.
