Preston & Sarah Farmer Fee©
[son of David & Lucy Noe Fee]

Preston Scott FEE(1) was born about 1823 and died by 5 Jan 1891 but probably only shortly before as his children participated in the inheritance of his uncle Luke Noe's estate (deceased 1890) and Preston therefore must have survived Luke. Preston married Sarah Mandy FARMER born about 1828 in Kentucky the daughter of William and Elizabeth FROST FARMER. Sarah was still living at the signing of a deed on * November 1895. Her sister Icy married his brother Abner and her brother Stephen married his sister Jane.

Land grants 100 acres 15 Apr 1853 Rockhouse and 100 acres 16 May 1857 on Slaters Fork

Family tradition indicates that Preston may have been the father of Jane ELY's son Lewis ELY/FEE who was raised by Preston's brother John. A complete discussion of Lewis and his parentage is in elsewhere on this site.

They had seven known children:

  1. William Scott FEE born 10 April 1848 in Harlan and died 19 April 1923 in Harlan buried at Yancey, probably in the old Dave Fee cemetery. He married ca 1868(2) Charity BAILEY born May about 1854 and died 23 Sep 1932, daughter of James & Elizabeth GARRISON BAILEY [Perry County?]. William Scott and Charity are living in Perry County in the 1870 census. It is probable that he went to Perry County to his sisters Charlotte and Mary MELTON. In 1880, William and Charity are back in Harlan County. Living with them is his grandfather, William FARMER and his brother Stephen and his family.

        There are two versions of an incident involving Verlin and Clyde Fee, one from George Titler's book, Hell In Harlan, and the other from local residents. Titler's book is a heavily biased (pro-Union) work and tends to link every act of violence that occurred at the time with anti Union activities by the operators.

        From Hell In Harlan:
        "On June 10 (1938), a murder away from the trial (government trial against 22 mine operators) scene shocked the court. Lester Smithers, a government witness and president of the local union at Yancey, was shot & killed while he distributed commodities to the unemployed miners of the local union. His murderers were 2 brothers, Verlin & Clyde Fee, non-union miners.

        "I had sent Smithers, a fine, outstanding union man, who was donating his services to the union, on his mission. I was told by eye-witnesses that the Fee brothers had apparently been paid by somebody to kill Smithers. They planned for one to start a fight with Smithers and then the other was to shoot him. It worked out as planned. Sheriff Cawood's chief deputy investigated the killing and testified that Fee shot in self-defense. This was cold-blooded murder.

        "According to the report of the deputy sheriff, these two men had been drunk and quarreling all day but the facts are that Smithers left the warehouse 1 1/2 hours before he was killed with a truckload of groceries and was as sober as a judge when he left me. In fact, I never knew of his drinking. Eye witnesses said that when the Fee boys started the argument with Smithers, they called him a snitcher because he had been subpoened before the court in London. The operators were obviously not happy because the union was feeding the men who were fired because of their union activities. Smithers was a fly in their ointment. The man who committed this murder went scotfree."

        When asked in the early 1980's about this incident local residents were generally of the opinion that it was a personal fight rather than a Union vs Operator affair and the consensus was that Smithers had beaten up one of Verlin and Clyde's younger brothers and that was why they were out to get him.

      3. Clyde FEE born 7 Mar 1911 married Cecile SANDERS born ca 1914 daughter of Charley and Cora SANDERS. Clyde was killed 9 may 1954 by his cousin Fern's husband, Columbus FOWLER.

When Clyde got out and went towards him, Fowler started firing.

NOTES

1. Harlan CONNECTIONS #2416

2. marriage date is from 1900 census, they may have married in Perry County

3. Settlement of T S Fee's estate was made 16 Aug 1921 (Bk 2 pg 48): W D Fee, guardian for Orlie and Mary Nannie; N H Fee, auctioneer; Martha Brittain cooked and washed.

4. per delayed birth certificate filed in 1943, Lizzie was their first child, born 29 May 1901. There is probably a four year discrepancy and correct date is 29 May 1897.
