Murder Trial 1920's
Posted by: Gayle Jones (ID *****9425) Date: September 16, 2003 at 09:01:32

Does anyone know how I go about getting information about a trial that took place in Putnam County? The young man was convicted and executed at the GA state prison in March 1926. He's related to my family and no one liked to talk about it. My great-uncle was present at the trial and even in his 90's was still bitter about it. Those closest to the event are now gone and I would very much like to know what happened. I know genealogy is mostly about censuses, births, marriages and families, but sometimes it means we look for things that can be unpleasant. His name was Ted Coggeshall and he was from Illinois.

Thank you
Gayle Jones
