In 2005, I found this information in Box #4 of loose, unsorted papers stored in the Lumpkin Co GA Court House in Dahlonega, Georgia. The official documents from the old court house have never been cataloged and comprise at least 30 legal boxes stuffed with original documents which are, unfortunately, not available as yet to researchers.

Hugh CAMPBELL was stabbed and murdered 25 Sept 1841 by Hamilton SNEAD who was delivered to the jailer the following day.
