Notes / Description: 

State argued that Hannum killed H. O. Wilson in his home in Blount Co. on May 21, 1890 using a pistol. The State's theory was that Hannum's love interest Nan West, with whom he had a child and lived with for 4 to 5 years, was found with H. O. Wilson. Hannum repeatedly threatened Wilson's life and then committed murder. Exhibit: map of Maryville, TN and J. T. Hanna Anchor Woolen Mill and 1890 almanac. See ET 1799 for additional part of case.
