Not just the town of Betsy Layne. My family the Layne's used to own from the Pike County line to Prestonsburg. The property that the old courthouse sits on used to be the Layne's

No, because I think I know you. I know one of your relatives pretty well. Is your first name "Byron?", maybe "Brandon?" Everybody around here seems to think Brandon's last name is Layne anyway.

I probably should add that everyone thinks the world of you two, BLS, if you're Byron or Brandon.

I think it's you that don't know anything about the Layne's. So far there's nothing on this post that isn't true... Some Laynes sold and traded most of what they owned and some keep it... Either way the Layne's still owns a pretty big section of Floyd County yet today... The Layne Family is a big family.

Oh well BIll JONES. Chances are YOU'RE NOT A LAYNE and you're just on of the many many many that claim to be a Layne. Because most real true blooded Layne's knows for sure how to spell OWNS since they OWN so much. It is not spelled OWENS. BTW you're commenting on here in several places except on a certain few. Ummm why is that? Here's your sign stupid.

yes chester did steal a lot of land from the people in floyd county that needed money for sickness,food and other things.oh by the way did you know that down in tram there is a black lady named constance lackey whos father is a layne? i know there are some good laynes out there somewhere but the truth of the matter is that back in the day they took advantage of a lot of good honest hard working people that had no other choice but to ask them for help knowing what was taking place.
