Testimony of Wm H Smith

Corinth, Jan.26, 1863

William M.Smith appeared before me and on his oath says that the rebels was hunting men down with dogs and also two women had been torn up by the dogs. On his way to Corinth, he heard that a man named Kennedy, who had two sons in the Union army was taken and hanged by Roddey's men-charged with having visiting his sons. They gave a negro a plug of tobacco to bury the corps.  Jan.18th.at the residence of a mr. Starkey while there he was surprised by rebel Calvary; Starkey ran and was fired on 4 times and escaped; Calvary went on to the home of Mr. Steadier a union man and rode him on a rail and gave him a choice to remain silent to the union question or be hung.-he chose the latter course. Eight hundred cavalry went to Randolph County to hang Lim Smith assigning as a reason for the course that he had made a speech against the conscript law.
