Attempted Robbery Results in Beating in 1901


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 7/30/1901.

Six masked men entered the dwelling of Wm. D. Greathouse the other night, supposing he had considerable cash from a sale of his farm.  Failing to find what they went after, the villians attacked Mr. Greathouse and beat him up shamefully trying to make him reveal where his  money was hidden.  They also misused his wife.  No arrests have been made yet, but the perpetrators are known and are being closely watched, and at the proper time they will be taken up.
