Kaaren Tramonte of Blendin Georgia followed her curiosity. She knows everything about Powder Springs’ history, but she was intrigued with Hangman’s Hill off of Kennesaw Avenue in Marietta.
So she did her research (it’s in a private homes yard) and went on newspaper.com and found the details to area where convicted criminals were hanged in Cobb County.
Albert Lingo’s story was really cool and I followed up my interview with Christa McCay of Marietta Museum of History. Why kill his brother-in-law in broad daylight? Why did he want to take his sister’s husband away?Why did he want to be buried in a walnut casket?
