The following article from
"Highlights and History of Fayette County" by Shirley Donnelly. Pg. 77

Thomas (Tom) Wayne put to death in 1911
Prior to the execution of Lemuel Steed on October 15, 1948, Fayette County had not had a resident legally executed for well over a generation---since 1910. Thomas Wayne, a 45 year old Negro of the Laurel Creek section was convicted at the October, 1910, term of court in Fayette County for the raping and killing of Lottie Aliff, a white woman, on the lonely mountain road between Layland and Quinnimont in August of that year. George Love prosecuted Wayne and M.W. Summerfield was foreman of the jury that found Tom Guilty. He was sentenced to be hung by the neck on December 23, 1910, until he was dead, dead, dead! That day the Moundsville noose claimed Tom Wayne, who was the thirteenth man to die on the grim gallows within the big penal institution's walls of stone.

She was the daughter of Emmitt and Bessie Yancey.
