RE: Drew Watkins
Here's the page about the 1910 shooting:

http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~txmatago/hotel_ben_hur.htm

It's about 1/2 way down the page. If my memory is correct about him being shot by a relative of the man he shot, you'll have a name to work with. Don't take the January 1911 as gospel. I'm just going from memory of what I think I read a few years ago and my memory could be faulty.

RE: Drew Watkins
I've tried to find out more, too, but with little success. I assume you've seen mention that Drew murdered someone in December of 1910 and, I think, Drew himself was murdered in January 1911. I was just trying to find some sort of newspaper report about it last week. I thought I had read a few years ago that he was murdered by a relative of the person he had murdered but when I was searching last week, I couldn't find anything. Have you tried the Matagorda Historical Society? Some of the ladies there are very knowledgeable.

As an aside, we must be 3rd cousins. My great-grandmother was Maggie Vogg - Nora's oldest sister.
