The Anuals of Haywood County has a good article about this Capt. Messer. His family settled there after their father was hung. There is a marker in Hillsborough, NC on the site where he was hung.
At the Alamance Battlefied Memorial, just off Hwy I-40 in Alamance NC the staff are glad to share information on the battle and the hanging. Look up the Regulators for more information.
