From the Dallas Morning News of 7.11.1910, Town Marshall C. C. Chenault killed by alleged murderer J. J. Freeman, a white man, who was dragged from his cell by an angry mob, was killed this date on the same spot he is accused of killing Chenault. The riot was precipitated by an appeal to the Supreme Court on behalf of Freeman. A note penned to Freeman's corpse said, " This is the outcome of the appeal." Freeman, a blacksmith, shot and killed Chenault 3 weeks earlier when Chenault attempted to arrest Freeman for a minor offense. Officer Chenault was one of the most popular residents of this community, and feelings against his slayer was intense.
