April 26, 1892: Negro

Today we learn about a Texas lynching from the Murfreesboro Index (Murfreesboro, N. C.) dated April 29, 1892:

Searchers for the two negroes who assassinated postmaster Kaufman, of Reisil, Texas, found one of them near Limestone county line. After satisfying themselves of his guilt, the mob strung the fellow up, and left the body dangling from the tree limb.

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