January 9, 1900: Rube and Frank Giveney

The Charlotte Observer (Charlotte, N. C.) dated January 11, 1900:

Another Double Lynching Expected.

Brownsville, Tenn., Jan. 10.—Additional details of the double lynching near Ripley show that Rube and Frank Giveney, brothers of the men charged with the murder of Peace Officers Will Turner and Albert Durham, were hanged by a mob last night. They were charged with being implicated in the murder. Henry and Roger Giveney, charged as the main participants in the double crime, are now being pursued by a mob of 600 people and another double lynching is expected.

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