Robert Walker Harris and his brothers Joe and Jim were all politically minded, holding local political offices such as sheriff, county judge, clerk, and others.  During his second term as sheriff, Gus Finley was convicted of murder and sentenced to death by public hanging.  R.W. resigned his office saying he could not take the life of another man, and he never ran for political office again.  Finley was hanged by others, but he stated from the gallows that there would never be another hanging in Floyd County, and that statement has held true to this very day.
