Three Children Drowned!

Southern Watchman, Apr. 5, 1860
We learn from the Washingtion Independent that a negro woman belonging to Mr. James M. Lankford, of Penfield, threw her three children into his well on Tuesday night of last week, and to make sure of their destruction she descended herself by means of the rope. She was drawn out next morning, and turned over to the authorities.
