Gastonia Gazette January 1, 1949  - L. Solution Suggested For Kendall Problem...
L. Solution Suggested For Kendall Problem RALEIGH— (/Pj— A possible solution to the problem of Hamp Kendall who wants a slanderous tombstone Inscription erased has been suggested by Attorney General Harry McMullan. McMullan said that Kendall might file suit against "the persons responsible for erecting and maintaining the tombstone," and "it is possible the court might issue a mandatory injunction requiring the erasure of the slanderous inscription." Kendall spent nine years in prison many years ago for a murder he did not commit. Later he was ftilly pardoned and the state reimbursed him about $5.000. However, a tombstone had been erected in a churchyard near Lenoir with an inscription which said that Lawrence Nelson was "robbed and murdered by Hamp Kendall.",
