Very long article about the hanging in Bartow County of Dutton for the murder of Sallie Mobbs on October 30, 1890. Here is an excerpt from the article, taken from a description of the murderer:

“I (Dutton) was born in 1861, at Farill, Alabama, Cherokee county. My mother was named Jennie Pilgrim before she was married to my father, A. J. Dutton, who was originally from South Carolina. I am of Irish and Black Dutch descent. My father was born in 1802, and is now ninety-two years old, living at Farill, Alabama, now in good health for a man of that age. My mother is sixty-four years old and is also in good health. My father has seven children of which I am the fourth child.

“When I quit home I was about ten years old, and was persuaded off by two bad women and went to South Carolina.”
