13716William McCoy murder, early 1900s
- Aug 1, 2010Hi all.
Any one have access to this tragic story from the area newspapers or know anything about this? William McCoy was knifed from behind with a hawkbill knife while working with the reins of a mule in the Fackler area, and the man who committed the act later died of smallpox awaiting trial in the Jackson Co. jail. A cousin told me of this yesterday; I think I have the main points right, but will be very glad for any corrections and/or additions to the story.
