the shot that killed Thorton Nance
at Piedmont church 19 years ago. At
the time of iiis tlrst trial he was sen
tenced to hang but escaped the gal
lows upon a second trial. Six other
negroes were convicted at the same
time. They were all given varying
terms in the penitentiary.
After his escape from the State
farm Suber made bis way about the
country, finally taking tip his resi
dence in Camden. Here he again be
came Involved in a tight with another
negro and killed his second man. This
was in IS97 and as a result of his
conviction he was given a five-year
