Birth: unknown
Death: Jul. 2, 1895
Maryland, USA

Mr. Price, a blacksmith by trade, was convicted of killing Ms. Sallie E. Dean, age 13, of Harmony, by slashing her throat while she walked to school. Ms. Dean was murdered on March 26, 1895, and Mr. Price was tried at the Caroline County Courthouse and convicted of her murder. A lynch mob formed on the night of July 2, 1895. The mob forcibly removed him from the Denton jail and hung him. He is buried with his grave oriented differently than most others in Denton Cemetery. {east/west instead of north/south}.
The Caroline "County Record" newspaper published a small pamphlet titled "The Murder of Sallie E. Dean" in the 1950's. It may still be available through their offices.
