Hugh Jackson Shot & Killed George Meadows 1891 - Williamson County, Texas
Posted by: Jeff (ID *****1511) Date: February 19, 2010 at 16:48:00

...and to make it even more of a tragedy, Mr. Meadows and Mr. Jackson were relatives.

Col. Makemson was Hugh Jackson's attorney during his appeal, and he won this appeal in 1893.

Does anyone out there have ANY information on this incident, the trial, the appeal, or know what the outcome of the new trial was?

I'd also like to hear from any descendants of either Hugh Jackson or George Meadows.

~ Thanks
