Lynchings in Maysville

I am looking for more information on these two Lynchings and any related local information.

Please post a reply with any links or information you might have.

LYNCHING: THE BLOODY RECORD

Descriptions of the problem of lynching often take on an impersonal tone until we are reminded that specific individuals die cruel deaths at the hands of mobs.

MASON COUNTY

Haines family (3 members) lynched Mason Co Kentucky June 20-21 1894

Richard Coleman, in Maysville, Ky., August 6, 1899

"Richard Coleman the farm hand who ravished and murdered Mrs Mollie
Lashbrook near Maysville was taken by a crowd of citizens at Maysville and
burned to death. His eyes were first filled with vitriol; his clothes
stripped and a big fire built around him. His death was slow and wreathing
in terrible agony, he was hooted and glared at by thousands assembled. His
fate was a horrible one and yet not more terrible than was his treatment of
the poor weak victim of his criminal lust and unbridled passion."

The Coleman lynching was in downtown Maysville near the concrete plant. There use to be a train station there. He was taken off the train by a mob after being returned to Maysville from the Covington jail, where he was being held for safe keeping. He was originally arrested in Maysville.

I don't believe there are any links to the original stories. The best bet is a hand search at the Museum.
