6. Newspaper: Atlanta Constitution: article about murder of Mrs. Lucinda Beecher, 1 Feb 1881, Atlanta, Fulton, GA. 6 Wiregrass Watchman.
Speaking of murders causes us to again mention that on the night of the 25th of December past there was one of the most outrageous murders committed in the county that has ever been detailed to us. The murderer was a Mr. William Young, who deliberately and without the least provocation, shot Mrs. Lucinda Beecher (his mother-in-law) with a double-barrel shot-gun, which produced instant death. The deceased had well nigh reached her three score years, was much respected, and had given to her county three as noble sons as ever graced a battlefield, all members of the 27th Georgia regiment, Colquitt's old brigade, with whose history the world is acquainted; yet this fiend is permitted to make his escape without even a reward (as we know of being offered for his apprehension, save $100 offered by returned soldiers of the lost cause) Surely the governor has been notified by the proper authorities, yet we cannot but think that there is a wrong here, knowing as we do the manner of man our governor is. Again it does not seem to us that if a reward was offered the Watchman should have been at least one of the quid nunces through the medium of which it should be made public.


Lucinda married Henry Beecher. (Henry Beecher was born in Jul 1812 in , , , ENG 1 and died about 1908 in Baxley, Appling, GA, USA.)
