On June 2, 1882 at about 9:30 p.m., David Bausman met death at the Kaw River while engaging in sexual intercourse with 14 year-old Sis Vinegar, Negro. On June 10, 1882 at about 1:00 a.m., a mob broke into the Douglas County Jail, removed and lynched the Vinegar men, also Negroes, for the Bausman death. The motive was said to be robbery, and the family labeled as a gang of misfits. Branded a prostitute, beggar, and a thief, she was sentenced to prison in Leavenworth, Kansas at the tender age of 14-years. Sis Vinegar never got to tell her story, until now that is.
