Found this article.Wanted to post so if someone is searching for this man.
BODY BURIED TUESDAY IN SIX MILE --- Alleged Highwayman Who Came to His Death in Lonely Place Near Charlottesville. ----BODY REMAINED UNCLAIMED.
The body of the man, supposed to be Herman Steele, of Newport, Ky., was taken to Six Mile cemetery north of Charlottesville Tuesday by F. R. Lynam, undertaker and buried.
The body had been at Lynam’s Funeral Home since it was found in a clump of bushes near the Pennsylvania railroad at Charlottesville, two days after New Guy, of Shelburn, had shot and killed a bandit when three of them held him up in the National road and attempted to kidnap him and steal his car, and Steele proved to be a second of the trio to receive a mortal wound from the sheriff’s defense pistol.
The first bandit was identified and the body shipped Monday to the home of his wife in Memphis, Ind., but no person has called for the body of Steele, and in conformance to the law, in such cases the body is buried at the expense of the township where the man came to death.
