The Daily Dispatch: November 2, 1863., [Electronic resource], Traitors arrested. (search)
Traitors arrested. On Saturday week eight traitors were arrested in Rockingham and Augusta counties, and committed to jail in Harrisonburg, charged with disloyalty to the Government, and with aiding and piloting deserters from our army to the Yankee lines. Their names are John Yates, of Mount Sidney, Augusta county, and Samuel Wheelbarger, George Cooper, Daniel Cooper, George W. Rumsey, John Hume, Samuel Bowman, and Rev. William Dunlop, of Rockingham county.--Subsequently two others, named William Coffman and John O'Keister, of Rockingham, were arrested on the same charges.--The evidence of their guilt is said to be very clear. All of them, with the exception of Coffman, have been brought to Richmond, and we learn will undergo examination before Commissioner Watson this morning.
