Family mythology has that my great grandfather, MARTIN LUTHER SHELTON, shot and killed a MR. LONG in Val Verde County at the Del Rio train station in 1918 or 1919. The provocation was a matter of family pride and the subject of the family mythology, but the repurcussions of the shooting are not known. Are there newspaper archives and/or legal records to track this information down? Perhaps the same archives would have information on Mr. Long.
