Thanks to Don Cox of West Linn, OR for the name correction & the following story about how his kinsman, George, had died. Don used to lived in Calera as a kid.

Don wrote:
"The events surrounding his death is that one day George was out cutting wood near Mead, OK for the winter fireplace when a man who was out chopping wood with George, brought a mortally injured George to town saying a tree had fallen on him. George lived for about 3 days, but was unable to tell the town's people what really happened.

There was a strong suspicion at the time that George was murdered, as the hat he was wearing had the exact cut in it that an axe blade would have made. Since there was no law in that part of Oklahoma at the time no arrest was ever made. He left a wife and two small girls."

George has a W.O.W. Tombstone
