“From Old Times in Randolph”: printed in the Randolph Register, dated September 25, 2012:

September 12, 1888

Newman Redeye of Coldspring had an experience Saturday night which ought to have been enough to try the nerves of the most stoical Indian.  After being beaten and stabbed until he was in an unconscious condition, by three assailants whose names he refused to divulge, he was placed on the Erie railroad tracks near the Red house station but regained consciousness just before the arrival of a train. Realizing his danger he managed to roll his body clear of the tracks and began yelling lustily for help. Several Indians came to his rescue. The Indians continue to refuse to divulge the names of the three men who committed the murderous assault but they said they await the outcome and then settle it themselves.
