I am looking for information on my great grandfather, Joseph W. Farmer, born 30 Mar 1857, Bradley Co, TN, died 25 Jan 1931, Los Angeles, CA. He left TN in about 1873, at about age 16, when he allegedly shot his brother-in-law to death for sleeping with the wrong sister. He was put on a horse and told to ride to his brother in Ozark Co, MO. I have been unable to find anything about this shooting, including the man's name or which sister he was married to. If anyone could find a newspaper article or anything with information, I would be very grateful. Thanks
