Legend of Black Braum Johnson

Can anyone confirm or refute the following story passed down in my family? Here is my dad's version via e-mail:

"It was eliza Hayes, i do remember that, her father or grandfather was
"Black Braum" Hayes, you triggered my memory, your gr-granpa claude
johnson
told me a Civil War story that his wifes granpa Hayes told him. Seems
there
was some Yankee soldiers staying in Bowling Green, and they went out to
eat
at a local restaurant. The locals were sensitive to the Cause, and
poisoned
the Yankee *astards, all but one were found dead on the banks of Green
River the next morning."

Has anyone ever heard anything similar?

Kelly
