I am a volunteer researcher for the Texas Peace Officers Memorial. Hardin County deputy constable Johnnie HARRIS, 24, was assassined in Dearborn community on 24 Dec 1905. The Beaumont Journal reported his parents were from Austin (Travis County) but his family decided to bury him in Saratoa, Hardin County. I am trying to locate his palce of burial and whether he has a tombstone. Also no names were known of the person who shot him from ambush. Any information as to whether anyone was ever charged with the murder would be appreciated.
