My great-grandfather, Brainard (Brainerd?) Bardwell was shot and killed on his land in Nolan County, near Sweetwater, on 11 Jul, 1898. He had apparently gone out to remove a trespassing sheepherder from his property. I would like to find out if anything was published in the local newspaper about this. At that time, Brainard and his wife, Mary Fly Bardwell, lived in the Bitter Creek Community, ten miles south of Sweetwater, on a ten-section ranch.
