Shooting of Henry Collins -possibly by Absolam Napier

I am still looking for the names of a Porter and a Napier who were involved in the shooting of Henry Collins, either in 1885 or 1895, in West Virginia. I was told this occurred in Mingo County.
I think the person who shot Henry Collins was an "A. B. Napier". I've checked to find that there was an Absolam B. Napier who was born in 1869, who may be the shooter.
If anyone has heard any stories concerning a feud between the Collins Family and Napiers/Porters, please let me know. These families were numerous in Wayne County, West Virginia.
