The Atlanta Constitution, Atlanta, Ga,
July 25, 1880
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)
