Elgin Hanging March 1873

I would like to find out if there is any information available on a hanging that took place on or about March 15, 1873.
From Pension papers I have just gotten John A. Stroup was supposedly "unlawfuly hung and killed by a mob near Elgin in Howard County now called Chautauqua ..the news became notorious and caused much excitement at the time "
It was certified by several members of the locality that he was innocent.
It was also stated a "Dr. Donaldson has the skeleton"

I would appreciate any leads - or where to look.

I will be on vacation for the next two weeks but will respond as soon as possible.
Thank you,
Betty
