Now this is the way a newspaper article should read. This notice appeared in the The Charlotte Democrat on April 06, 1877. I haven’t done a lot of research on my 3rd great-grandfather. I remember this tale being told regarding his death and was happy when I found the article on ChronicleAmerica.gov. I have seen transcriptions elsewhere that added his parents and/or wife, making it seem the original article included that information. I look forward to finding more information on Mr. Caudle.
