Query: Wants more on JIM item Eli Bailey vs. Cy Watkins

Beverly Colvin Smith writes:
I am working on the Bailey genealogy and found the mention of Eli Bailey who killed Cy Watkins in your article. Do you by chance know the story connected with this killing? I have found several simple articles but nothing with details of what actually happened. Any help you may have would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so very much. My address is:
Beverly Colvin Smith
40 June Drive
Campbellsville, KY 42718
My phone number is 270-465-2571. I will appreciate an assistance in finding a detailed account of this incident. I am working on a Bailey genealogy book and will donate one of the complete books to the Adair County Library. Would love to have this story in the book. - Beverly Colvin Smith, Family Historian
