As a result of further trouble between the whites and blacks caused by the lynching of John Gibson, a negro, who was identified by Mrs. Ed Winbourne, as her assailant in an outrage committed early in the week, the whole Gibson family, including the father and other relatives, have received warning to move out of the county just across the Alabama border. Three negros have been shot, one a preacher. Will Harris, uncle of the negro was lynched. The others were killed Thursday. The lynching took place Wednesday.
