You are probably right on the Jack Lucky part. I just associated the name Jack with Jack Lucky when I seen the pic. Jack Lucky was a friend of the family but I was only 8 years old at the time so I probably got them mixed up.

Jerry Webb Hollifield b.1882 d.1940 and Texas Arizona Stalcup Hollifield b. 1890 d. 1965 both are buried in Richwood Cemetery relocated from Bryson City, Swain Co NC to Richwood just before 1930. Of there children there were two boys: Christopher H. "Harve" Hollifield b. 1924 and Jerry Webb "J.W./Jay" Hollified b. 1922. Both boys served in the Marines during WW II/J W received a PURPLE HEART. J W married Doris Jack. He was on the Richwood City police force in 1954 when we had the bad flood, then I think he worked as a Nicholas Co Sheriff Deputy for a few years then in 1958 came back to Richwood as a city policeman at that time Chief: William "Pickle" Spencer, other officers were: Jack Lucky and Bernard Dawson. I don't remember what year J W left the police force but he died in 1961 while at work with a construction company near Kingwood. I will post separately a picture of JW included in an article "Richwood State Champ Supplier of Marines"

Along with J.W. Hollifield, Jack Lucky, Bernard "Deboone" Dawson, etc I think Bob Wilfong was on the police force around the same time! He still lives in Richwood the last time I was there for CRF.
