|The Memoirs of Daniel W. Cunningham: The Criminal History of Roane and Jackson Counties, West Virginia were published in 1928.
Cunningham said his recollections could be considered inflammatory by some, reigniting old passions, while others called his memoirs as a vitriolic diatribe rooted in the feelings that the Skeens-Counts gang had done his family wrong.
Cunningham and his family were described as not being innocents, having blood of their hands, and some of his accounts are likely not accurate.
But the accounts are nonetheless fascinating during a time when law enforcement was sketchy and ruthlessness prevailed, particularly with family feuds.
