The Texas Rangers and the San Saba Mob

SELECTED PASSAGES FROM VOLUME 1

Submitted by Ross J. Cox, Sr.

Editor's Note - Part 32a of a continuing series.

In the end the release of Ogle was most affected not by his friends in San Saba but from a most unlikely source, his prosecutor.

Linden had visited Ogle at least once in Huntsville and used his influence to assist him with a pardon.

Highlights of Harkeyville

By D. Harkey

The cold spell that came into our County this past weekend might have come close to proving the old adage of "Thunder in February will frost in April." I didn't get to check the low temperature on Saturday, but the highest of the day on my ol' "Snapper" thermometer was 37°. Surely a good day to stay in the house and read a book or two. It turned nice on Sunday afternoon but Monday was a bit cool. The short sprinkles we had in the latter part of last week did little for the rain gauge but did settle the dust on the County roads. Maybe we're in for a better rain soon.
