I am seeking verification or otherwise on an interesting story in my wifes genealogy. The story in her family is that her great grandfather was a Judge in the Big Sandy region of Kentucky in May 1892 and he rendered a decision that was unpopular with with the opposing faction. They in turn killed the Judge and supposedly all the male Adkins over a certain age. The judges wife was pregnant with my wifes grandfather and the events of the day caused her to deliver him and die in childbirth the same day as the Judge was killed. My wifes father says that a movie was made about the events but he can't remember the name.What a story!!!!
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
