December 23, 1890: George Mabry

The Semi-Weekly Citizen (Asheville, N. C.) dated January 1, 1891:

MACON, N. C., Dec. 24.—George Mabry, one of the negroes who assassinated Dr. Edmond H. Riggan in his store in Mecklenburg county, Va., last Saturday night, was lynched last night near the place where the murder was committed in Mecklenburg county, Va., and not in Macon, N. C.

Thank you for joining me and as always, I hope I leave you with something to ponder.
