A few years ago I posted a query about a man named Bigfoot Ray or John Bigfoot Ray who was killed in a bar fight somewhere in Milas Co Tx although I had heard he was killed in Rogers Tx and Rosebud Tx too. I do not know when he was killed but it was probably in the twenties or thirties. He obvously was part native American. I have since found that he was killed in a bar fight in Buckholts Tx. Would anyone who researches Milam co TX history be able to help me find who this man was and when he was killed? I was told there was a newspaper article about Bigfoot Ray being killed but the person who told me did not knwowhich newspaer or when it was printed. Maybe some older folks in Milam co TX might remember the story. Any help appreciated.
