I recently came into contact with a distant elderly relative who told me that one of our mutual relatives was supposedly murdered sometime in the 1940s (I guess in Cochran County) and is supposedly buried in Bledsoe, TX. I was wondering if anyone knows anything of a murder around this time? (Possibly even in the 1950s, I'm guessing.) Or if anyone has access to old newspapers from the area. The name is John W Norman and he was born in Texas around 1877. I know he was living in Bledsoe in 1940, as I've seen him in the census from that year.
Thank you for any help you're able to provide ahead of time. :-)
