Burned Alive
Steele Scrapbook - May 19, 1885

Note the typo in the title... It should say, "Buried Alive".



PETERSBURG, Va., May 19.—The exhumation of the body of Samuel Stokes, of Blacks and Whites, Nottaway county, who was supposed to have been murdered, leads to the belief that he was buried alive, while unconscious from a blow on the head. Henry and Lizzie Stokes, colored, father and mother of the dead man, have been arrested on suspicion of having murdered him.
