Thread Name: History: Tom Dooley didn't kill Laura Foster?!?
Subject: RE: Tom Dooley didn't kill Laura Foster?!?
Tom's last name was Dula, pronounced Dooley for the sake of the ballad, it just roles off the tongue better. It was not Dulay as prior mentioned. I live in Lenoir,NC about fifteen minutes from Laura's grave. Another misconception is thyat she was buried high upon a hill, when she is actually buried in field.
