States: Texas: Wise
Debbie: This might at least help you pin down the precise date and exact location(s) a little closer. A brief article appeared in "The Dallas Morning News", 23 April 1890, pg. 4, out of Decatur, TX under date "22 April" which states: "Andy Foster, the young man shot in the head near Gum, in this county, last Friday night, is reported to be improving and will doubtless recover. His examining trial for the murder of Will Jarnagin is set for Thursday at Bridgeport."
It's likely that more detailed accounts appeared in local papers such as Decatur, Denton or even Ft. Worth. I'd have to check WorldCat or such to try an see what area papers from the period survive. Hope this helps. Rick
