Lee I have been doing some research on John Stroope
he was the son of my GGgrandmother Sarah Jane Benson Dalton
from her First marriage , he was born in Kerr co Tx.
May 15th 1859, and yes i do not think he was killed
by the Odles i have not found yet where he is buried
but with my research i think they the rangers at Vance
killed the wrong Odles, John Odle was the one they where
after he was the one who killed his father-inlaw in
Burnet Co. Tx 1885. And yes i have been to Bullhead mt.
at Vance my Dad took me there where the Odles are buried
when i was just a Boy, I live just 14 miles from Vance Tx.
