|Yes, I can see that happening. Harlan County is probably even distrustful of those of us from Letcher County. We're probably also outsiders to them. Sometimes we have to list our lineage to prove ourselves to our neighbors!
They've always been clannish there, probably the Scotch and Irish blood that flows through their veins, maybe the Cherokee, too. But to have been exploited on the cover of national magazines in the 60's and early 70's made it even stronger.
