Looking for further information on Wersdoerfer/Klinger shooting. Only information I have been able to obtain gives on further details then the below information.
“Date: June 1851 – Joseph Wersdoerfer shot Mrs. Wilhelm Klinger. Joseph was then shot at the courthouse and dragged out of town on a cowhide.”
I have searched census records for Klinger surname with no luck for matches of Wilhelm. Also seems strange to me that Joseph would have been shot (dead?) and then run out of town?
If anyone can point me in the right direction for further information, it would be much appreciated. (I don’t live in Texas so any original record research would have to be done long distance.)
Thank you in advance for your help.
