Victim of the Camp Logan riots. Incorrectly listed in Buffalo Bayou: An Echo of Houston's Wilderness Beginnings as a soldier.


E. A. Thompson was among the first to be killed by the rioters, presumably near Washington Avenue. Adam R. Carstens, a 48 year old house painter with a large family, was shot and killed near Parker Street and Center Street. M. D. Everton, a member of Company H, 5th Texas Infantry, was found dead near Carstens. He had been shot in the liver and in the right shoulder, and he had been bayoneted in the abdomen. . .
