Murder in 1832

My family records indicate that my ancestor Charles Cartwright was murdered in Amherst Co. in 1832 during a train robbery that occurred as he was making a delivery of lumber to the train. But some other Cartwright descendants dispute this story.

Does anyone have access to old newspaper or other files where this story might be authenticated?
