Transcribed From Vernon Courier, Lamar County Alabama

 

Randolph, Jan. 11 – Some three months ago Mr. B.B. Head of Bibb county was murdered by one Jim Tate, and Tate was arrested a few days ago in Jackson Parish, Louisiana, but its sheriff,  R. H. Jones, the sheriff, arrived in Randolph at 10 o’clock last night on this way to Centeville jail, and between the train hotel Mr. Jones was shot from ambush by unknown parties, evidently for the purpose of releasing Tate, the murderer of Mr. Head, and when Mr. Jones was shot down the prisoner escaped and is at large today. 

Coosada Village

Coosada Village, also known as Coosada Creek, Cosauda and Coosauda. Coosada Creek comes from an 1850’s map and it is thought “Creek” was indicative of the inhabitants, Creek Indians, and not used as a name. Additional maps label the area as Rileys Creek or Jones Creek and for a while the name was Coosawda. Present day Coosada is located in Elmore County in the central eastern part of Alabama.
