Note from Deloris Deem: Grandfather grew vegetables and took them to market and sold them. After selling them one day he was on his way back home and was attached by three men, they beat him very badly and robed him. He knew them. After he got back home and healed, he went after them. He found them one by one and beat them like they beat him, only one of them died. He hid way out in the woods for a year after that and his wife would take him food. Then he turned himself in and was sentenced to a year in prison. My Dad use to tell me his Dad was a preacher and Mother would say he was just a laymen. So I guess he was an okay man. in 1882 at Ritchie County, WV.
