Hi Martha-

I don't know anything about a trial, but my records show that Melvin Stevenson moved to New Mexico. His WWI draft card shows his occupation to be "Deputy Sheriff". Later census records indicate that he was a successful farmer. He died in 1941 and the obit in the Stamford Leader states that he is survived by J.W. (John Wesley) Stevenson and 4 sisters. Melvin and JW were brothers of my GG-Grandmother Mary Etta Stevenson Sorrell.

The 1900 census for Melvin Stevenson has a niece and nephew living with him - the name is hard to read --looks like Jarrod, but maybe it is Garret?
