Does anyone have a family tree/ line info for filmaker Shelby Lee Adams.. (true meaning of pictures)
In his documentry he says he was raised in Hazard and that his grandparents lived in Letcher county at Johnsons Fork,
Since most of my Adams line ancestory came out of Letcher co. I am curious who he is kinfolk to.
also if anyone knows the lineage of the Napier family in his film (John and Berthie Napier ?) I would be interesting to know that also.While many find Shelby's work controversial, I find the who works very interesting.. and his subjects are represenetive of many folks I came in contact with as a child.. thank you all,
