J. F. Lamb Shot to Death by Jule Hampton at Caddo, Okla.
Durant, Okla. Sept. 17- J. F. Lamb was shot to death by his son-in-law Jule Hampton at Caddo last night. Lamb, Hampton, and the latter’s wife attended a theater and on coming out Hampton caught hold of his wife’s arm roughly and hurried her down the street. Lamb remonstrated when Hampton wheeled and shot him in the breast. Hampton made a successful break for liberty, although pursued and shot at by the night police.

Jule Hampton Released on Bond
On Wednesday afternoon Jule C. Hampton, who was convicted at the last term of district court to serve 30 years in the state penitentiary for the killing of his father-in-law, J. F. Lamb, in this city last September, was released on bond pending the appeal of the case to the Supreme court. The amount of the bond was fixed at $8,500.00 and was furnished by a number of citizens prominent among whom were Albert Matoy of Matoy, T. J. Impson of Bokchito, M. C. Lee of Ada, and others. The amount scheduled by the bondsmen was something over $50,000.00.
I have not located any information about Jule’s fate, but I do know that a Julius C. Hampton registered for the draft in 1917 and was listed as “single, supporting a child” and there is a Jule Hampton listed as a barber in McAlester in 1923. A Julius C. Hampton, 1886-1925 is buried at McAlester. I have not been able to verify that these are the same person. If you have any information I would appreciate hearing from you.
