The Atlanta Constitution, Atlanta, Ga,
July 25, 1880
Submitted by

Rockmart correspondent Cedartown Advertiser.

  A considerable riot occurred here last Friday, in which knives and pistols were freely used. W.T. Simpson was shot twice by a man named Bowen, one shot entering the bowels and going through his left little finger. His condition at this writing (Monday) is considered dangerous. A. H. Michael the Marshall, attempted to arrest Bowen, which caused a general disturbance, and Michael was severely cut in the left arm and side of William Lowery. His condition is also critical. There were a considerable number of persons engaged in the riot, and all evaded arrest by fleeing, except old man Daniel Lowery and the injured man Simpson. Daniel Lowery was bound over to the superior court. (The Daily Constitution, Atlanta, GA, July 25, 1880)
