Byler Family Genealogy Forum
My ggrandmother was a Byler, so this item caught my eye. It is from the "Perkins Excelsior" newspaper, Payne County, Oklahoma Territory, Sept 24, 1894:
"Deputy United States Marshall NIX and George STROMER arrested Charley WATKINS, alias Jesse R. RAPIER, Saturday. The prisoner admits that he killed Sheriff A G BYLER, of Baxter County Arkansas. He is charged with the killing of a cattle inspector in Nebraska and a man in New Mexico. In all, the officers say there is a reward of $4,700 for the arrest of WATKINS. He is also charged with impersonating United States officers."
I hope this is of interest to someone.
