The Texas Rangers and The San Saba Mob

By Ross J. Cox, Sr.

SELECTED PASSAGES FROM VOLUME 1

Editor’s Note – Part 27b of a continuing series.

A Matter of Justice

By November of 1897, a new grand jury was in session and again the Rangers were busy protecting witnesses. Finally, the hard work and perseverance paid off when the grand jury returned seven murder indictments. Bill Ogle, Allen K. Bailey and W.J. Burnett were indicted for the murder of Jim Brown; and John Hass, Bill Kimmons, Little Jim Ford (son of Matt Ford) and Nelson P. Smith (son of Preacher W.P. Smith) were indicted for the murder of William A. James. Although the grand jury had the courage to indict, they were still concerned for their personal safety and security, as they placed another statement in the San Saba County News.
