"Following the Civil War, the Wacasers moved to Daingerfield, and for several years had a hotel there. Fred Traylor, of Mt. Pleasant, who is a nephew of Elizabeth Wacaser, says that while the family was operating the hotel in Daingerfield, some men came up on the porch where their son, Jeff, was playing when he was a small boy and kicked him off of the porch onto some rocks that cut his face in several places. The man immediately left the hotel. Frank Wacaser, after getting his boy in the house and getting him quite, took his gun and began hunting this man and found him in one of the saloons there in Daingerfield and killed him. The Justice of the Peace said that it was justifiable homicide, and nothing was done with him."
