ROBERT ROUDEBUSH KILLED
Robert Roudebush, aged 33 years, who lived with his mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Roudebush, four miles northwest of Conroe, was accidently shot and killed in a field on Saturday morning. He went out early with his team to break some ground, and took a double barreled shotgun with him with the intention of shooting some crows. He was using a riding plow, and had the gun in front of him. One of the wheels of the plow struck a rock and the jar dislodged the gun. One of the hammers of the gun struck the frame of the plow in falling and the weapon was discharged. The muzzle of the gun was close to Roudebush’s body and the contents of the barrel that was discharged entered the unfortunate young man’s breast, producing instant death. The lifeless body fell from the plow into the furrow behind. The horses completed the round they were making at the time of the accident, and when they returned to the point of the accident were frightened by the body lying in the furrow and ran away. It was the action of the horses in running away that called the attention of the members of the Roudebush family to the accident. The deceased was 33 years old and unmarried. He was a man of excellent character, and his tragic death is regretted by the entire community. (Lafayette Courier, Monday April 22, 1901)
