January 6, 1894: Joshua Mitchell

The Fayette County Leader (Fayette, Iowa) dated January 11, 1894:  

Near Harrodsburg, Ky., white caps killed Joshua Mitchell, gave Breck Bottoms fifty lashes and warned many others.

I could find no other information on this lynching. Another lynching occurred in 1901 according to The Chicago Daily Tribune. The lynching of James Denson and his step-son for murder in Madison, Florida. Thank you for joining me and as always, I hope I leave you with something to ponder.
