There was a time when the Baker and Stapleton families had a minor altercation. It seems that Jess Baker  was taking a truck into the holler where he lived in order to remove coal from the mine on his property. Ada Stapleton , wife of Ken, did not like the idea of the truck passing across her property, even though it was a pubic roadway. She pulled a pistol on Jess and took a shot at him, missing. Jess was not one to give up a good fight, chucked a rock at back at her striking her up side the head. The argument was getting heated up further when a neighbor jumped into the fray. The neighbor pulled a gun on Jess, who then took out a knife to defend himself. The neighbor ended up with a shredded coat. Shots were fired and Jess was shot in the neck (grazed). The neighbor was shot in the leg. It is my understanding that help was called for the neighbor, however, they found Jess injured and took him to the hospital instead of the neighbor, who later walked into the hospital for assistance.

The feud did not end that day. For a number of years afterwards the Stapleton family would cross the street/look away any time that they passed a member of the Baker family. Apparently the feud did not last long, as I always remember visiting with Ada Stapleton  when I was young. -- Judy Smith
