Description: Joe Mead Seriously Injured

Date: September 30 1887

Newspaper published in: Tupelo, MS

Source: Lee County, MS Library

Page/Column: Page 1, Column 5

We very much regretted to learn that Mr. Joe Mead, a popular and well known lawyer, formerly of Hazlehurst, but now of Birmingham, was seriously, if not fatally, injured last week. He was walking out one evening with his wife, when they were suddenly struck over the head and beaten by some negroes, and left almost dead. They have not been able to speak further than to say that their assailants were mulattoes who struck them without warning. Great indignation is felt throughout the city, and a large reward has been offered for the miscreants. It is doubtful whether either of the wounded parties will recover.—New Mississippian.
