"The Tragic Violence Along Buffalo Bayou in 1917"
by Louis F. Aulbach
Buffalo Bayou: An Echo of Houston's Wilderness Beginnings

The mob of soldiers headed south to converge at the narrow bridge across Buffalo Bayou at Shepherd's Dam at the end of Brunner Avenue. For those who were unaware of what was taking place in their neighborhood that evening, the consequences were dire. . . . Jitney driver E. M. Jones, 53, drove his last fare of the day and was found dead on a shell road near Brunner. He had been shot several times and his right arm had been severed by a saber.
