1892 :: Watchers Shot in the Leg

Rockdale, Tex., Nov. 26. -- Billy Doss, living four miles west of Rockdale, has been annoyed recently by some person rocking his house at night. Last night while Edna Hinter and George Doss were on guard to catch the perpetrator of the outrages unknown persons slipped up and shot both men in the legs, Hinter seriously and Doss slightly. Papers have been taken out for the arrest of August Silky [Seelke?], suspected as the guilty party. Dallas Morning News, November 27, 1892
