Upshur Co Deputy Sheriff Cull Rogers 1887

I am a volunteer researcher for the Texas Peace Officers Memorial. I am researching an incident in Gilmer in Feb 1887 in which Upshur County Deputy Sheriff Cull ROGERS shot and killed Tom GRIMMER and was himself shot in the heart and thigh. ROGERS' brother Bill was slightly wounded. Bill & Tom had a quarrel and were intoxicated and Deputy Cull ROGERS tried to separate them and was shot by GRIMMER. I need to determine if ROGERS died from the wound, and if so his full name, date of birth, place of burial and any family history.
