Daws Knick pleads guilty to robbing Chatsworth post office (1912)

Daws Knick pleads guilty to post office robbery in a 1912 article:

 "...and the plea of guilty of Daws Knick, who acknowledged to robbing the Chatsworth postoffice.
  "Knick was sentenced to two years in the penitentiary, having also entered a plea of guilty to larceny. It is probable that the government will handle him for the postoffice robbery."

"Murray County Court Adjourned Saturday: Two Interesting Matters Came Before Superior Court," in *North Georgia Citizen* [Dalton, Georgia], 29 Feb. 1912, page 5. (accessed 4 Dec. 2016).

(2) James Dawson Knick (son of above), born October 1891, Georgia, US; died 11 May 1952, Whitfield, Georgia, US.
