I am a volunteer researcher for the Texas Peace Officers Memorial. On 11 Nov 1931 Edgar C. WATKINS was found mortally wounded in his car. His death certificate states he died from an accidental wound. The Dallas Morning News (15 Nov 1931) described him as the city marshal and former fire chief. Other news articles and the death certificate report he was a plumber. He was born on 6 Nov 1899 and was from San Antonio. I am searching for evidence of whether he was the city marshal.
