I am a volunteer researcher for the Texas Peace Officers Memorial and the Texas Prison Museum. On 1 Sept 1921 two prisoners at The Walls Unit in Huntsville, Walker County, kidnapped Assistant Warden Dewitt F. OLIVER. He was cut with knives and thrown from the walls. He died on 17 Sept 1921. He was buried in Henderson, Rusk County. He was survived by his father William,a brother (no name known) and a sister (Ione). I am seraching for his place of burial and any surviving family members. OLIVER was born in 23 Dec 1876 or 1877.
