One day while sitting on the jail house porch reading the newspaper a tragedy struck Lafe. Across the street was a man by the name of Elzy Langford. Elzy pulled his gun & shot Lafe King right thru the newspaper, seriously wounding Lafe. Supposedly Elzy thought Lafe as someone else. Lafe King died a few days later of complications from the gunshot wound. Elzy was later shot & killed by "Uncle Dave Clark".

Comments:
Very interesting! An ancestor I am researching is Washington Brock, born May 1927 in Knox County, came to Rockcastle County and Married Vianna Frances Giles in 1855. He enlisted into the Union Civil War. I have worked at the Camp N elson National Cemetery twenty years. I just recently received a Civil War headstone for his grave. It is to be installed Oct 28, 2000. I am trying to find his parents. Without proof, I suspect them to be Jesse Brock, Jr. and Sarah Noe. Everywhere I find him, I find Micagher, Jeremiah, Harrison and Irvine Brock. I suspect some of these are his brothers. If anyone can help me, I would surely appreciate it!!!!!! THANKS.

14th Kentucky Volunteer Cavalry (G.A.R.)
"The 14th Kentucky Cavalry was organized in the fall of 1862, under Colonel H.C. Lilly. Companies A,B,C, and D were mustered in on the 6th day of November, 1862, at M t. Sterling, Kentucky, by Captain S.E. Noell. Companies E,F,G,H,I,K,L, and M were mustered in at Irvine, Kentucky, on the 13th of February, 1863. This organization acted in the capacity of scouts, and operated battalions. Being raised in the mountain counties of Kentucky, its duty was to prevent those frequent raids by guerrillas which annoyed and often proved disastrous to the loyal residents of that section of the State. For efficiency, bravery, and discipline, this regiment received the highest praise from the Department commander. It was engaged in many skirmishes with guerrillas, in which loss was sustained. It is a matter of regret that the officers of this command neglected to furnish a historic record of the operations, marches, &c., of the regiment. The muster-out roll of Company B is not on file in the Adjutant General's Office; the military history of the officers and enlisted men of this Company i s therefore omitted. - Adjutant General." The following database created in 1994 is a condensed version of the more detailed version at the Knott County Historical Society. The Society's version includes grave locations, marriages, parents, death certificates, pensions, etc., and is updated on a regular basis. We would like to make you aware that there were other 14ths in the area: For the Union - The 14th Regiment Kentucky Volunteer Infantry and The 14th Regiment Kentucky Veteran Volunteer Infantry, For the Confederates - 14th Regime nt Cavalry

Notes for Riley Brock:
Clay's weapons made for interesting episode in Lincoln history
By David Gambrel
Staff Writer
With the passage of the concealed carr y law by the 1996 Kentucky General Assembly the issue of weapons in the court house has become a hot topic. Ironically, perhaps the most famous episode in the history of Lincoln County involved weapons in the courthouse. Although the courthouse was replaced around the turn of the century the story of what ha ppened there before the Civil War lives on. In 1855, Rev. John Gregg Fee, an evangelical abolitionist who founded Berea College, attempted to give a spee ch against slavery in Crab Orchard. Fee, who was described as a tiny, wizened man with straggling
whiskers, in ``Lion of White Hall'' by David L. Smiley, was run out of Crab Orchard for speaking in favor of emancipation. That set t he stage for his colleague Cassius Marcellus Clay to come to Crab Orchard. `` If we were not allowed to speak freely according to our constitutional rights, our whole scheme of emancipation failed,'' said Clay. So Clay made an appointment to speak on slavery in the same place Fee had been violently driven a way. Surrounded by armed followers, Clay went to Crab Orchard and made a spee ch against slavery. Shortly after his Crab Orchard speech, word was sent to Clay that if he
came to Stanford he would be killed, retired Somerset history professor Margy Johns said in a recent interview. Clay, who stood 6-foot-3 an d weighed over 200 pounds, was undaunted by the threats. In a speech to the Chicago Civil War Round Table on Oct. 17, 1952, William H. Townsend, a Lexington attorney, described what transpired at Stanford. ``Over at Stanford, Ky. , they sent word to Clay that they would kill him if he came over there, whic h was right down old Cash's alley it seems to me. At any rate, on this Saturd ay afternoon at the appointed time, he walked alone down the aisle in the crowded courthouse, and he mounted the rostrum. He started out by saying, `Now gentlemen, for those who have
respect for the laws of God I have this argument ,' and he put the Bible on the lectern. `For those who believe in the laws of man I have this argument,' and he put a copy of the Constitution on the lect ern. Then fixing his eyes on the most threatening group in the house he said, `and those who believe in neither the laws of God or man I have this argum ent,' and he reached down in his old gray gripsack and pulled out two long bl ack pistol and crossed them right there. Then he laid his bowie knife across them. It is said that he had no trouble after that and finished his speech. . ..'' Although Clay had no trouble that day, his feuding ways eventually did him in. During the Civil War, he became a Major General in the Union Army. He was also U.S. ambassador to Russia. In 1894, at the age of 84. Clay married 1 5-year-old Dora Richardson. A little while afterwards they divorced and Dora married a man by the name
of Riley Brock. When the couple fell on hard times Clay took his ex-wife and her husband in at his Madison County home known as White Hall. One day on a drinking binge, Brock was beating Dora and Clay got out his pistol and ran Brock off. Brock left but returned with two others that night and broke in Clay's house. It was Clay's last battle. He was 93 at the time. He met the three ruffians with a pistol and bowie knife. Clay kille d one of the men with his pistol. One of the others was found the next mornin g in the back of the spring house, having been slashed right below the navel by Clay's bowie knife. Clay survived the armed confrontation but his health we nt to rapid decline afterwards. He died on July 22, 1903.

I'm very interested in the information you posted on Absalom Giles since he is my GGGG grandfather. You have his birth date as 1758 in NC. Also the date of their marriage. May I please ask where you obtained that information? I'm looking for the source. Also do you have any information on Absalom father? Richard Giles is his name. Elizabeth Stillwell was his wife.

Regards,

John T. Giles

Hi Jim, found a copy of a hand written marriage cert for William J. Giles and Elizabeth Brock at Columbia, Ky library. They were married August 10, 1842. William had a brother James W. Giles. Elijah Giles signature is on the cert also. Still verifing: Absolam Giles and Nancy Singer were Elijah's parents. Absolam parents were Richard Giles and Elizabeth Stillwell. My branch of Giles was from Adair Co. Hope this helps, should you find connetions let me know.
