Murder of Charles Hinkle (son of Casper Hinkle of Perry Co, MO)
Conrad "Coon" Cotner
b 1794 Burke Co, NC
He never married.
Coon lived with his older brother David after their father's death. He served w/ Lt. Col. Dodge's Company of Mounted Militia 30 Aug 1814 to 12 Oct. (White Family Ancestry and related clans.ged)
In 1827 Coon was tried for murder in Madison Co. on a change of venue from Cape Girardeau Co. He was convicted of manslaughter for the death of Charles Hinkle with a sentence of one year imprisonment and $500 fine. His sentence included alternate months of hard labor chained to the anvil in the blacksmith shop of Elisha Bennett, Fredericktown, Madison Co. He was returned to prison at night.
Was also charged with bootlegging. (1888 Goodspeed's History of Southeast Missouri, 1955 reprint edition)
"There was a little "wet weather mill" near Col. McKnight's in the Old Baptist Church neighborhood, but it only ground when there were copious showers. It was used for crushing grain for distillery purposes. JACOB COTNER was the owner of the distillery.
It was during a spree here that CHARLES HINKLE was killed in a fight with COON COTNER, and Henry Whittenburg; at this late date it cannot be said with any certainty who did the killing. COTNER and Whittenburg were in jail in Fredericktown. COTNER was in jail two years. At the trial they were acquitted of murder, but as I remember they were fined and imprisoned. Whittenburg had considerable means and easily disposed of his fine.
Many years after this Whittenburg drowned in a (hog waller) and COTNER froze to death. Both were drunk.
