September 26, 1884: Jesse Greene

Today we learn about a Texas lynching through the pages of the Dunkirk Evening Observer (Dunkirk, N. Y.) dated September 30, 1884:

A Hard Character Lynched.

GALESVILLE, Texas, September 30.—News has just reached here that Jesse Greene last Friday evening met his fate at the hands of lynchers in the northern part of this (Coryell) County, near the Hamilton line. Greene bore a hard character, and was implicated in the recent wholesale negro poisoning.

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