Surnames: FRALEY, GILLEM, SMITH, COOK
This information was given us by Mr. John Stegall regarding family members who were involved with the Elliott County Regulators.
I am seeking info on the following men:
Fulton H. FRALEY
G. W. C. FRALEY
Rufus FRALEY
Samuel FRALEY
Fred GILLEM
Jesse GILLEM
Joseph GILLEM
Pleasant GILLEM
William GILLEM, Sr.
William GILLEM, Jr.
Peter SMITH-my Great Great Grandfather.
From my own family files:
On Sept. 26, 1863 "The Cooks" "a pro-Southern group robbed the bank is Ashland, KY. For this deed Adam C. FRALEY and Marcus G. FRALEY were taken Prisoners." End Quotes. I believe the leader of the Cooks was Anderson "Devil" Cook-someone down home told me this.
Regulators also from Notes in the Elliott County Library:
Formed in the Autumn of 1879 their Anon spokesman was "Judge Lynch"who declared "law would be brought to all law-breakers".
From the Lexington Gazetter May 29, 1880 in regards to the Regulators:
"a struggle between the very best men of the mountain counites and outlaws."
End Quote.
