Mr Franklin killed 10 Oct 1857 Lampasas Springs by AB Burleson and Robert Moore

Looking for details about the shooting of "Mr Franklin" (first name?) on 10 Oct 1857 outside Lampasas Springs by AB Burleson and his brother in law Robert Moore as reported in the Belton Weekly Independent. Andrew Bell Burleson went on to be a Captain in the Texas Mounted Rangers and later a Lt Colonel in the CSA. What is the background to the shooting? What was Mr Franklin's first name. I think I know who he is (someone who disappears from records after 1857) but I need some more information. Robert Moore was married to Andrew's sister, Martha Burleson. Does anyone out there have any more information about this shooting?
