John B. Thomas and Family in Young County 1923ish

Looking for ANY info on John B. Thomas who died in Young County, Texas, in 1923. I believe he was born in Alabama in 1869, but I'm not sure. I don't know anything about his parents or possible brothers/sisters. I was told that he died in a shootout in Newcastle, Texas. Supposedly there was a dispute between union and nonunion workers. Was there a newspaper in Newcastle or the immediate area in 1923?

John and his first wife (name unknown) had one son, Jack Thomas, who worked for the Graham Water Department in the 1940s. I think he had 1 son and 2 girls. I would also like to locate members of his family in an effort to find more about John B. Thomas.

Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Lynn Allen
