A. P. Minchew, Dallas, TX, March 1926

I came across an old newspaper article this week in a Waco, TX paper which had been in a Dallas paper on March 13, 1926. It pertains to an A.P. Minchew, a Dallas and Denver Oil Operator who had been in the public for the past two years as the result of a divorce proceedings and prolonged litigation, reported today (in that date's paper) that an attempt had been made on his life. ETC. ETC.
He had gone to a garage to pick up his car which was being serviced when a gunman pulled a weapon on him and threatened his life. According to the article, an automobile drove between them before the gunman could fire his weapon. The gunman jumped in a car and left before officers arrived. Etc.
Does anyone know anything about who this A.P. Michew is/was and what line of Minchew family he is associated with? Just curious.
