1891 :: An Old Citizen Accidentally Killed


Dallas Morning News, October 3, 1891. Rockdale, Tex., Oct. 2. -- An accidental death occurred in the edge of town last night. H.T. Bush, an old citizen of Milam county, but lately of Merkel, Tex., was driving out after dark in a wagon alone when in some way he fell out and the wheels passed over his head and neck, killing him. Nearly $500 was found in his pockets, thus banishing all suspicion of murder.
