Real name of James Page, found to be Andrew Jackson Mullican. On Sunday evening, October 17th, Mr. Hamilton and his wife Nora, went over to a neighbor's -- Andrew Young's --and left the two young men, Stewart and Page, at home to stay with the children...Later in the evening Mr. Hamilton and wife returned home, accompanied by Mr. Young and found that Page and Stewart had gone off and left the children. Page and Stewart went down in the field together and shot off pistols. Later they passed up by Jerry Hamilton's and stated that they were going up to Mr. Hensley's to sit up with the sick. They went up to Mr. Willaby's about three quarters of a mile from James Hamilton's, and Page refused to go any further. They had supper there and Stewart remained there until about eleven o'clock, when he left Willaby's and went back to Hamilton's. He got there before Mr. Hamilton and Mr. Young went to bed.
