Amazing to read about "The Burton Case " June 1887 as this was my Great Grandfather who lived in Newport and he had a very successful horse and buggy transportation service in Newport in 1850 , we are an historic African American family who were part of the "Gilded Age" in Newport at the turn of the century. Benjamin F. Burton had about 30 horses and he was in business for 25 -30 years and he would deliver desserts for the pastry chefs for the parties at the mansions on Bellevue Ave. There was rumor of his murder, but this document examines his death in such detail. Sad for our family history, but well documented for us! Thank you
