In 1868 in neighboring Wilkes County, N.C., the newspaper printed the following: "Thomas C. Dula suffered the extreme penalty of the law by hanging... convicted of murder..." During his last days in jail tradition says he composed his tragic and still popular song in which he confessed stabbing his sweetheart. But the song did not reveal the other woman who may have done the deed. "Poor boy, you're bound to die..."
