THE HANGING OF GREEN AND RAPP

"On the night of that memorable 26 Sept. a company of cut-throats met at the house of Jacob Fulcher, and hung him until he was unconscious. After robbing his house, they went to the house of John Rapp, robbed him, and hung him on leaning tree. They them went to TIP GREEN'S and after robbing his house, brought him to Rapp's house and hung him besided the dead body of Rapp. Two days later I was ordered , as public administrator , to take charge of Rapp's estate. The only valuable I found in his his house was $20.00 bill of Confederate money, lying on the floor. It wa said that the possession of this money was the excuse for hanging him. I did not inventory the $20.00.
