From the WP on Louis Marshall "Grandpa" Jones, the Hee Haw banjo dude:

A resident of rural Ridgetop, Tennessee outside of Nashville, he was a neighbor and friend of fellow musician David "Stringbean" Akeman. On the morning of November 11, 1973, Jones discovered the bodies of Akeman and his wife who had been murdered during the night by robbers.

I'm just bitter cause my folks on the Southern side of my family always called me Stringbean. Thanks hand-me-down pants when you're seemingly the only skinny person in your family's history.
