Marshall Benton Taylor's nickname was indeed The Red Fox. He is the model for the character called Red Fox in John Fox, Jr.'s novel, "The Trail of the Lonesome Pine", although not everyone agrees that Taylor was the bugged-eyed madman that the novel describes. For those interested in another perspective on Marshall Benton Taylor, I highly recommend the play, "Red Fox/Second Hangin'". A video of the play is available from appalshop.org. Doc Taylor is my great, great, great grandfather.
