Dear Mr. Raisor,
I see that our friend Robin has already responded with the best links available in the web.
In searching for my own Walker family history, I had the occasion to visit Owenton in Owens Co., my father having been born in that town. Searching the public library for birth records uncovered micro-film records of newspaper accounts of the Smoot-Walker Feud.
I asked the librarian about this feud and was told to “Hush, there’s still Smoots living in town and their friends, too.” Contacting her privately I learned that there were as many as five unrelated Walker families living in and around the Owenton area at the time of the feud. She also mentioned that there is at least one Walker grave in a Smoot family plot.
I am sorry that I no longer have her address to give to you.
She was the head librarian for the Owen County Public Library in Owenton.
I can appreciate how difficult it is go get any substantial information on the Smoots or the Walkers and I wish you success in your search.
