“About noon yesterday, Sam Macfarlane, colored, died at the city hospital from four terrible wounds. He was the man who was shot on Harnett street near the crossing of the Seaboard Air Line and who was thought to be dead. He was employed by Messrs. Belden & Howle [Howie?] and was on his way home to dinner when he was shot. He was among a lot of hands who it was thought were going to Brooklyn to take a hand in the riot and who persisted in going on when warned to go back. He resided at 1014 North Second street, and leaves a widow.”
Wilmington Messenger, Nov. 13, 1898, p. 8.
