November, 1894: Gobe and Ulysses Nolla

Today we learn about a lynching in Kentucky through the pages of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) dated November 7, 1894:

LYNCHED BY WHITECAPS

Father and Son Killed on Charges of Being Firebugs.

Morganfield, Ky., Nov 6.—News reached this city to-night of the lynching near Blackford, Crittenden county, by whitecaps, of Gobe Nolla and his son, Ulysses. They were charged with burning houses, together with Berry Rich, who was lynched last week, and also for other crimes.


Tomorrow I will cover the lynching of Berry Rich. Thank you for joining me and as always, I hope I leave you with something to ponder.
