Five Folsom Riot Ringleaders Must Die on Gallows
Five of the six Folsom prisoners, who led a desperate attempted prison break on Thanksgiving day of 1927, must die on the gallows for the murder of fellow prisoners. They are: Tony Brown, San Francisco bandit, the ringleader; “Eddie” Stokes, Los Angeles thief; Walter E. Burke, Sacramento robber; James Gregg, Fresno murderer, and Eugene Crosby, Oakland holdup man. The fate of the sixth convict, Albert M. Stewart, the “men with 21 aliases,” who turned state’s evidence, is still in the balance, as his case was not included with that of the request before the supreme court. The attempted break on Thanksgiving day, 1927, cost the lives of four guards, seven convicts and three deputy sheriffs, turned 1200 of the 2100 prisoners into a rioting horde, which seized the inner sections of the prison and called into action 500 national guardsmen and as many more deputy sheriffs and other posse men.
George was killed during the riot.
He was buried in the Folsom Prison Cemetery
Row 7, grave 17.
