Two Brothers Killed in Claiborne Parish

Two brothers were killed in a shootout in or around Homer, La in the 1850's or early 60's. I have heard these brothers were the sons of a prominent judge but I am not sure. The person who killed these two brothers was Robert Henry Pair, who escaped from jail, some say with the sheriff's help, moved to Texas, changed his name to Alexander Jones and enlisted in the Confederate Army. If any one is descended from these brothers or knows anything about this story, please let me know.
