Collette King always has an interesting story to tell from Mobile’s past. On Saturday, she’ll share the case of Charles Boyington, hanged in 1835 for one of the city’s most infamous murders. But what he guilty or innocent?
King, an historical records technician in the Archives Department of the Probate Court of Mobile, will discuss the case at the February meeting of the Mobile Genealogical Society. King also serves as archivist and file technician for the North Gulf Coast Archaeological Research Consortium. She served as treasurer and History Committee member for the Bicentennial Committee of Mobile County 2012 .
The meeting will begin at 10:30 a.m. in the Vitale Room, which is immediately behind Holy Family Catholic Church, 1400 Joyce Road, in Mobile.
