LUTHER, James – (d. 1890)

In Union township, Randolph county, N.C., D.H. MILLER killed James LUTHER, having shot him three times with a revolver in the doorway of George LUTHER‘s house after a quarrel and struggle.  There was a feud between MILLER and LUTHER, and MILLER had gone to George LUTHER’s house, which he was endeavoring to enter.  He made his escape just after LUTHER fell dead.  Four shots were fired at MILLER as he fled.
