The Texas Rangers and The San Saba Mob

Jeff Snelling, the man who was in the field with Turner the morning he was killed, was put on the stand, but his dread and evident fear were such that he could not intelligently testify.

As a witness for the state his testimony was absolutely worthless.

On cross-examination Mr. Poindexter, for the defense, got him to say that a few days before Turner was killed, at Mr. Blackwood’s home, in the presence of Trowbridge, he had told that Turner had said to him that Matt Ford shot at Murphy and that he (Turner) had seen Ford enter his house one night after he had been ordered to leave the country.
