(Blountsville, April 27, 1881)
On Saturday night last, one of the
foulest, most cowardly and dastardly assassinations which could blot
the annals of our fair State occurred at Bangor… While Capt. Frank A.
HANNA, an old citizen of the county, was sitting reading a newspaper,
at his residence, with a light near him and the door wide open, the
assassin slipped up within 20 feet of him, with a rifle carrying
quarter ounce ball, and fired… instantly killing him… His remains were
taken to Hanceville on Monday, and interred by the side of his wife.
He leaves three little children… Capt. HANNA was a man well known in
the county, was about 50 years of age… and was formerly the proprietor
of the Bangor Herald…
