Article in the Rowan County News of Thursday, June 2, 1932:

"Sanford DeBord died Tuesday evening as the result of serious knife wounds received Sunday night at the hands of Sam Cassity, according to reports. The cutting was the result of a quarrel earlier in the evening, it is alleged.

Cassity whose home is in West Virginia and who arrived here for a visit on Saturday evening, accompanied by his wife, was an old friend of the DeBords, it is said. He and his wife were visiting at the DeBord home and DeBord and Cassity had attended church together Sunday morning. Various stories with regard to the cutting have been circulated. All stories agree that the quarrel started at the DeBord home.

Cassity and his wife left there and later DeBord set out for the home of Mr. and Mrs. Steve Caudill. He met Cassity and his wife on the way and the cutting occurred. DeBord was cut fourteen times in the stomach and abdomen and died on Tuesday night. Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon.

Mr. DeBord was a brother-in-law of D. C. Caudill and D. B. Caudill of this city and an uncle of Steve and John Caudill. He was 66 years of age, while Cassity is said to be 53 years. (Note by HLD: D. C. and D. B Caudill were David Crockett and Daniel Boone Caudill brothers of Sanford's first wife Amanda Caudill who died in 1921 ; D.B., D.C., and Amanda were children of Abel Caudill and Mary Hall. John and Steve Caudill were children of Sanford's sister, Elizabeth, who married Henry Clay Caudill, son of David Caudill and Rosannah Christian)

Cassity immediately gave himself up to Constable Andy Alderman and is being held in the county jail pending his examining trial.

On Monday, DeBord made a deathbed statement to County Attorney J. W. Riley. He said that, realizing that he was about to die he wished to make a final statement of the tragic affair. He said that Cassity and his wife came to his home where they planned on spending the night. They had been great friends in the past. While they were standing talking, Cassity, who he said had been drinking, knocked him down. Cassity and his wife then left. Mrs. DeBord and her children also fled. After Cassity left, he (DeBord) went down to Steve Caudill's to find his wife. He said that he had evidently gotten ahead of them and turned back when he got to the barn, running into Cassity accidentally. He stated that they had exchanged words but that Cassity jumped on him and knocked him down and then proceeded to cut him up. He admitted that at the time he had both a pistol and a knife on his person but that he had not been able to get either of them out of his pocket. He also carried a stick and attempted to strike Cassity but did not know whether or not he had succeeded. He admitted that he had two drinks with Cassity, the liquor belonging to Cassity, but stated that he was not under the influence of liquor at the time.
Examining trial for Cassity has not been held."
Note by HLD: This must refer to the 2nd wife and children of Sanford Debord. Sanford's 1st wife was Amanda Caudill (sister of Daniel Boone Caudill and David Crockett Caudill). I'm fairly certain that Amanda died in 1921 in Rowan. I have not found Sanford in the KY Death Index, which is not surprising for a normal death but is very unusual for a violent death.

1179. Daniel Boone Caudill

From a 1908 newspaper clipping reproduced in the 1956 Centennial Edition of the Rowan County News:

"Mr. Daniel B. Caudill and Miss Etta Proctor were married at the home of the bride Friday night at 8:30 o'clock, F. C. Button officiating. Mr. Caudill is one of our most promising young lawyers and business men. He was educated in M.N.S. and the Normal School at Valparaiso, Ind., where he took both the law course and the commercial course in banking. Miss Proctor was also a student at Morehead Normal. The happy couple will reside in our city, and the best wishes of all our citizens will be with them."
