Daniel Britton Daugherty, son of Noah and Mary(polly) Daugherty, and his friend Bob Lowe were involved in a shooting on Petros Mountain Tn. Daniel Britton and his friend, Bob Lowe were walking down the mountain, and were discussing the arrest of Daniel's son by Byrd Daugherty. Two sons of Byrd's, Willie and Fisher, fearing for their Father's safety, walked up the mountain to meet him after his return from Clinton, Tn. There, their paths crossed that of Daniel Britton and Bob, Byrd and his two sons were killed in the shootout on 1 April 1922.
