March 1912 Daily Ardmoreite published in Ardmore, OK
A triple lynching was narrowly averted in Madill this morning by the cool action of Sheriff Gray of Marshall County.
Several days ago, Harrison Watts, J. W. Watts, and C. F. Taylor were lodged in jail at Maill charged with the murder of an aged man some five miles south of that city. The murder was so brutal that public sentiment has been daily growing more bitter against the three prisoners accused with the crime....
The mob by the time train arrived from east were well organized and had gathered along the sides of the Frisco tracks...
Sheriff Gray had made arrangements with the conductor of the train to stop at the crossing near the jail after leaving the depot... prisoners taken to Carter County jail...
The three accused men seemed greatly relieved when the iron doors of the Carter County's modern jail closed behind them.
