Killed January 20th/21st near Sylvester, GA. John Seymour, Felix Lake, and Felix’s sons Frank, Dewey, and Major were taken from jail by a large, well-organized group. They were alleged to have killed a local sheriff. No arrests or prosecutions took place of any who carried out the lynching, nor of the jailers for failing to protect their prisoner.
Widely covered by newspapers due to the number of victims, the fact that they were a family, and reports that the lynching was witnessed by a large crowd.
