Rockdale, Tex., April 7. -- A father and his two sons, who left home yesterday for an outing, were drowned in San Gabriel River, eight miles north of here. Bodies of the trio -- Joe Lopez, 40, and his sons, 14 and 11 -- were taken from the river this afternoon. The supposition is that the younger Lopez boy ventured in water too deep and that the three were drowned when his father and older brother attempted to rescue him. A searching party went to look for Lopez and his sons when they did not return to their home. Tracks near the bank attracted searchers to the hole of water where the bodies were found. Accidental drowning was the verdict of Coroner leroy H. Hillyer. The Galveston Daily News, April 8, 1929
