Hello, I have, on this one page of threads, heard (people like myself,from "Western Kentucky"), reffered to as"Hicks,Rednecks, and
I'd like to reply by saying first, that the particular area of "The Kelly Incident", is not in the "Hills of Kentucky,in Eastern KY",But in the
(extremely western part), of KY. It lies near the 2nd largest man-made lake, in the world,"Kentucky Lake",as well as "Lake Barkley".
I have information regarding "The Kelly KY incident"; and would be happy to share it, with anyone out there, who is truly interested in what
happened that night.
There were no "hillbillies, nor uneducated hicks" involved.
The word "Redneck", comes from a person who works as a farmer, out in the sun, and the sun tans, or reddens their necks.
Yes! It is a farming community, of some The world's only "Dark-Fired Tobacco", especially in the past decades. The people are learned enough, they
grow, harvest, preserve their own vegatables; as well as raise their
own livestock, slaughter, and "Cure,their own meat"(I've been a vegatarian, as an adult however). We Kentuckians,"grow our own,
make our own liquor, and are well known around the world(this particular area), for making the world's most beautiful "Quilts".
This having been said; what happened that night in Kelly,KY., truly was
not a situation involving "moonshine, or idiot hillbillies". There were
creatures on their roof, one of them "grabbed one of the younger men,
by the hair, from above him, while on top of their porch, and pulled him up by his hair, some 3-4 feet",(1.5 meters approx.), as well as attempted to
break into their home. In a quite aggressive fashion. I have known of this story since childhood. I quote from a book, that retells this incident
and I am of an opinion, these were ETs, these kind, Christian people were
not stupi enough to 'tear up their home, nor shoot at any living creature',
much less call in the local & state law enforcement, thus staking their reputation, for nothing. They were, attacked pure and simple.
It is not my intention to 'be defensive', regarding the insults to my home
area. It is my intention, to educate, not offend anyone. If there is any interest, let me know and I'll post more "true and substanciated details of
the incident. In the meantime, feel free to *U2U me, on this topic as well.
In conclusion, I will say this; Kelly KY. is less than 50 miles to The 101st
Airborne Division(Paratroopers), Fort Campbell Army Base.
This was not an "uneducated, or stupid family"; and the details I've heard
growing up, as well as the story told to me by a Sutton family member,
all tell that was a downed craft, an attempted abduction/attack. It all
began August 21st,1955, when Billy Taylor 'went outside to the well for water, and he saw a large ,strange light come down into a ditch nearby'.
The 'attack', began The next night, the 22nd, just as both the Taylors, and Sutton families were having a visit. They heard something on the
The dog went off, barking like crazy, then whimpered, and laid down in hiding. Then the creatures were "On the roof, as well as at a window
attempting to gain entrance".
I'd have "Shot, too, at any creature, or person, attempting to break-in my home", wouldn't you? No "Hillbillies or Hicks",here. Just a true
has never fully been understood. As well as good people, unbelieved and mocked, simply because of social predujices. I find that quite sad.
If you'd like to know more...I can tell you what other details I know, of what occured
August 21st & 22nd,1955. In Kelly, Kentucky; to some God-fearing Christian people, who were frightened to the core that summer night of August 22nd,
1955. Thanks for your interest.
Peace&Grace To All,
