Chilton Times August 26, 1865

A White Man Stabbed By A Negro-On Friday night a ball was held at the Chilton House and was attended by a number of persons from this vicinity. The musicians were, Freeman Richards, and Murray Charles. During the evening a great deal of quarreling took place and about two o'clock A. M. this (Saturday) morning, Oliver D. Golburn, a Frenchman, was stabbed, an in all probability will die. From the evidence now in out possession it seems that the stabbing was done by Richards, one of the fiddlers, and it is considered to be one of the most cold-blooded crimes ever committed in this county. Richards is a negro well known as a lumberman and well digger in this and Manitowoc county. In our next we will giver further particulars.
