John A. Lewis, Butcher and General Store Owner, Killed 1910

Hi, friends and maybe relatives unknown! My Grandfather, John A. Lewis, is buried in the Rogers Cemetery with a Woodsman of the World tombstone. He was killed Sept. 10, 1910 on main street, shot off his horse. His little family soon fled Bell county and Texas altogether. I am searching for any record of the event or an obit or anything! The man who shot him was actually defending his brother from my Great Grandpa's wrath, and this man was probably not charged with murder at all, in that he shot my great-grandpa in self-defense, according to our family lore. Yall help me if you can!
