Dr Robinson Messina Earle
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 31, 1794
Greenville County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Sep. 8, 1838

In September 1838, Yancey returned for a brief return visit to Greenville. A political slur by Yancey in a private conversation was overheard by a teenage relative of the aggrieved party. Yancey was confronted by another relative (and his wife's uncle), Dr. Robinson Earle. Conversation turned to violence, and the always-armed Yancey ended up killing the doctor in a street brawl. Yancey was tried and sentenced to a year in jail for manslaughter.
