Swain County Herald (Swain Co. NC) Thursday, June 27, 1889:

"Georgia---Alexander Henderson, colored, was hanged at Bainbridge [Decatur Co.] for the murder of Henry Jones and his seven year old daughter. Henderson broke down on the scaffold and confessed his guilt. He cried good bye to all just as the drop fell. His neck was not broken and he died from strangulation in 14 minutes."
