Ken McElroy–Back To Skidmore

      I’m heading back to Skidmore this weekend. David Dunbar, the former sheriff of Skidmore who resigned after McElroy pulled a shotgun on him outside the D &G Tavern, is holding a pig roast in Maryville, and insists that I attend. David is a terrific cook, and he was very helpful with the book, and it’s been a couple of years since I’ve been back. I also need to spend time with Margaret Goslee, who just turned 92. The Goslees put me up and provided invaluable help during the many years I spent in Skidmore.

      People often ask me if I was scared during my stay in Skidmore. A couple of times, I have to admit. I had a shotgun pulled on me. But the reactions to my posts on Del Clement, the primary shooter, have been startling. You might remember that one truck driver  made a no so subtle threat if I didn’t stop writing about Del. Several family members were also hostile. I know they follow this blog.

    Skidmore is a small town. Everyone will know of my presence long before I arrive. We’ll see what happens. Stay tuned.

  1. Harry,
    It’ll be interesting to hear about the trip. Especially considering the plan for next year.

    I’m especially curious about the Skidmore Food and Drink. Is it open, closed, etc.

    • At last notice, the restaurant was still open. Let’s hope it lasts longer than the last one. I’ll check it out later this summer, hopefully.

  2. Harry Maclean! I read your book and love it! Can you provide an email address or a way to get in touch with you please? I have a few questions to ask about some locations of the shooting and the Valley Road.
