Huff Presided In Court

County judge W.C. L. Huff presided over many a court in the "good ole' days." He was the father-in law of "Aunt Can" Huff, who still lives on Clover Street. Grant Smith, a big property owner was the sheriff at that time. The circuit judge was a man by the name of Boyd. He presided over courts in Laurel, Knox, Bell, Perry, Letcher and Harlan Counties. He was quite a busy man riding horse back from one county to another, bringing with him the commonwealth attorney whose name was Clark. Some promising young lawyers who practiced in the early days of Harlan courts were: Henry L. Howard, father of Orville Howard; Pole French, father of Mrs. Dee Hensley; Carlo B. Brittian, father of Mrs. Marion Howard, Judge W.F. Hall, father of Elmer Hall and George B. Skidmore, father of Lizzie Farmer and grandfather of the writer.
