I am a volunteer researcher for the Texas Peace Officers Memorial. On or about 8 Oct 1894 William M CURRY was accidentally killed when his shotgun discharged at Burlington. CURRY was born about 1853 and was buried at the city cemetery at Rockdale. He was a convict for the Texas Prison System and had been employed at least since 1885.
The question is whether CURRY was on duty on the day of his death. Was there a state prison camp 2016-12-21 or farm at Burlington? Any assistance would be appreciated.
