The Toccoa Times April 8 1896
The wounds killed him.
Clayton GA, April 2nd. Samuel A. Beck an ex-sheriff of Rabun County and a member of the board of education who was seriously stabbed 3 weeks ago in a difficulty with John, Sam, Silas, and Luke Fowler died this morning at 1 o'clock from the wounds then inflicted. Mr. Beck was a kindhearted clever gentleman and had scores of friends in every part of the County. The funeral services will take place tomorrow at Antioch Church. Judge Kimsey speaks of holding a special term of Rabun Co Superior Court for the purpose of trying the four men who have been committed to jail charged with the killing.

Seems all this was over a keg of whiskey that Sam had suspected the Fowler boys stole. Sam and some friends confronted these boys with this, and this was the end result.

I know nothing more about this then what I have posted. I am not related to this family.
