Ernest was married twice. I do not know the first wife's name, but

Ernest second wife was Selena Messer born December 12, 1906 in Cocke
County,Tenn. She was murdered on November 1,1942 Mud Pond section of
Travelers Rest, S.C. The Mud Pond was a beer joint that Ernest Bayne
owned and opperated. The news paper said that the stepson, Jesse
Rhodes Bayne lived with Ernest and Selena. It said Jesse shot Selena
twice, once in the neck and once in the jaw, which blow half of her

and was taken to the hospital until two days later by her brothers.
She latered died at Greenville General Hospital, due to blood lost.
