Harmon-Burton Feud: It happened in the 1920s in Adair Co., KY

Click on photo for complete Classic Story by Jason Harmon which first appeared ten years ago, January 1, 2006 in CM. Photo from the collection of Murrell & Karen Burton.

Charles White (Toad) Harmon was a major player in the Burton-Harmon feud, ca 1920s

This photo is of Mr. Harmon and his wife, Clara in a warm, family scene. In one encounter, Jason Harmon, the historian who wrote the account of the feud says,Toad Harmon suffered an extreme beating. Charles White Harmon was the great grandfather of Jason Harmon. Though some ill-feelings smouldered into the 1960s, Jason Harmon says the Burtons and Harmons have long since buried the hatchet.

Accompanying the photo was a Classic Story by Jason Harmon, posted the same day:
