Fred Britton Lynched for Murder in 1882

I am searching for information on a gr gr uncle Fred A. Britton who apparently murdered his employer (last name of Rickards ?) in 1882. Fred Britton's father and brother had previously been sheriff and deputy in Franklin County. Britton was apparently removed from the jail by a lynch mob and hung on Jan 17, 1882. Is anyone familiar with the details of this incident?
