The Handbook of Texas entry says "in 1846 Lindsay S. Hagler was killed in an affray on the streets of Goliad, Texas by a man named Pool." Hagler had been elected surveyor of Goliad County on October 13, 1845, and county clerk twelve days later.
In 1840 Hagler had been elected also to represent San Patricio County in the House of Representatives of the Fifth Congress of the Republic of Texas. He was defeated in the election of 1841. Hagler was reelected to the House of Representatives of the Seventh and Eighth congresses and served from November 14, 1842, until February 5, 1844. Lindsay or Lindsey S. Hagler or Haegler (also referred to as Thomas Hagler) was killed in the town of Goliad in 1846 by a man named Pool according to lots of sources on internet but none give the actual source of the event (newspaper etc.) or the month and day of the shooting in 1846. Who was Pool - is that a family name in Goliad, Texas? There is a biography of Lindsay S. Hagler in the Handbook of Texas online. Also, Lindsay Hagler was a brother of my ancestor, Philadelphia Hagler, who married Cornelius Howard in Wilkes County, North Carolina where Lindsay Hagler was born on 20 APR 1815. I don't know if Lindsay Hagler owned land in Goliad County or if there is a probate record for him if he did in fact own land. He was a captain on June 17, 1836, and served until September 30 in the Army of the Republic of Texas. He rejoined the army with the same rank on December 24 and continued in service until December 15, 1837. He spent part of this time recruiting in the United States. For his service he received a 1,280-acre bounty donation in Atascosa County and also one in Llano County Texas. Since he died in 1846 in Goliad, in which cemetery in Golida, Texas would he likely have been buried, being one that would have existed in 1846? thanks Randy in Houston
