Galveston Daily News
Galveston, Texas
January 23, 1883

Fayette County
Flatonia Argus: The Argus was not aware that SAM CROCKETT, former resident of this county, and son of JOHN R. CROCKETT of this place, had been killed until a day or tow ago. He and his brother, JOHN W. CROCKETT, took horses from Texas to Florida and while there a negro stole one of them and was pursued by Mr. Crockett and the sheriff, who finally overhauled him, when a fight ensued, resulting the death of Mr. Crockett.

Grayson County
Whitesboro News: A considerable amount of carp fish were received here last Wednesday and Dr. W. H. TROLINGER has been busy, distributing them among the applicants. About a year ago Dr. Trolinger put 20 small German carp fish in his pond and informs that he took one of the number out which measured 18 inches and had nearly a pint of eggs in it.

Hopkins County
Sulphur Springs Gazette: GEORGE RAMSEY died of pneumonia last Saturday morning. Our community lost one of its best citizens. The death of Mrs. TOM HART occurred last Friday morning. About 500 children are now attending school in our city, including male and female, white and colored.

Red River County
Clarksville Times: On Wednesday NUBBY FOLSOM and JIM WILLIS, two Choctaws, met at the store of WRIGHT & PEROT at Kiometia on Red River in this county. They had long been deadly enemies and a meeting meant fight and a fight to the death. On sight, the battle opened and quite a number of shots were fired by both parties. Willis was shot through the body four times and was borne bleeding and almost lifeless across the river where he expired. Folsom was wounded very seriously but perhaps not mortally. There has been a family feud between the parties for a number of years.
