I am a volunteer researcher for the Texas Peace Officers Memorial. I am researching the death of Jasper County Constable W. A. ABBOTT on about 8 Dec 1902 in Kirbyville. He was struck in the head at W. J. Newton's store and died afterwards. I need info about this incident, was anyone arrested, convicted, family history, and burial location. The 1900 census for Jasper Pct 3 lists Wesley A ABBOTT, 46, b. Feb 1854 in TX; wife Nancy, 34, b. Feb 1866 in AL; children (T) or (F)ildy, dau, b. July 1881, age 19; Daniel, b. Feb 1885, age 15; Luther, b. July 1888, age 11; Edna F., b. Jan 1891, age 9. Wesley & Nancy were married 20 years in 1900 and had two non-surviving children.
