A PIECE OF THE FOX’S HIDE

by Katharine Boling

This chilling account of the powerful Bigham family has its beginnings in the late 1700s.  The grip of terror the family held on inhabitants of northeastern South Carolina lasted over 100 years. 

Defying the laws of man and God, the Bighams established themselves as lords--acquiring land and power, strong arming anyone who stood in their wary.  On January 15, 1921, their dynasty crumbled.

When five of the six remaining members of this notorious family were found brutally murdered, it was believed the family had finally turned the gun on itself.  The sole survivor--who doubtlessly bore the brunt of public retaliation against his entire clan--was convicted of the slayings.  Throughout the six years of trial and the subsequent forty years in prison, Edmund Bigham maintained his innocence.

For five generations the Bigham family was known in the Pee Dee region of South Carolina for their superior intelligence and power and their contempt for the law. This powerful account traces the family’s history to the sensational mass murder in 1921 and follows the six years of trials of Edmund Bigham, the sole remaining family member who was accused of the slaying. Includes courtroom testimony.
