Hanging Rock, Ohio Historical Events

1866, November
I have been told that my gggrandfather, George Willis, was murdered on his farm in November 1866. I believe he was 24 years old at the time of his death. Allegedly (3) men rode up on his property and shot him to death. the (3) were caught and (2) were hanged and (1) hanged himself in the jail.
