Lum You Grave
Pacific County, Washington

Contributed by T Sheldon, Aug 23, 2000 [tsheldon@tss.net ]. Total records = 1.

Completed by T Sheldon this 13th day of May, 2000.

Location: Sec 35, T14N, R9W

This grave is on private property that was owned by the then sheriff, Zack B. Brown. For years the local Chinese visited the grave of Lum You at this sight. It seems that Oscar Bloom had robbed Lum You, so the latter found Mr. Bloom later that day and shot him dead. Lum You was found guilty of murder and was hanged in front of quite a large crowd.

Lum You, d. 31 Jan 1902, "The only legal execution by hanging in Pacific Co history"
