The Case of Hog Smith
By Jeannette Holland Austin
Jeannette Holland Austin
The case of James "Hog" Smith concerned a Cherokee accused who was convicted for the killing James Graves in Walker County. Graves was the sheriff of Walker County, and fearing that a mob might overpower his small force, asked Cass County to house the Cherokee. During October of 1834, the death sentence of &Hog" Smith was upheld by the Georgia Supreme Court. Thus, the Indian was removed from the Cassville jail under heavy guard to Murray County, where he was executed. There are a number of cases which may be read about in the Georgia Reports and an assortment of books pertaining to Supreme Court Cases
