Having been a Yates my whole life, I feel I am qualified to say that no Yates, brother or sister, ever just left their guns at home! LOL

Darling Barber Yates' close relative in Florida, Needham Yates, claimed credit for bushwhacking the scalawag Orange County Sheriff David Mizell. Beginning of the famous "Barber-Mizell Feud" that claimed 41 victims.

Have one question? It this before they named it Neshoba county fair because the fair start date is 1889??

Frank Dungan
I believe this was actually the sheriff and his group at the time. It really may have nothing to do with the fair.
