I am looking for Milam County Sheriff's records for my Grandfather - Thomas Ivy Hill - who served as
Sheriff's Deputy in 20's in Buckholts for 12 years.
He owned a Saloon in downtown Buckholts in 1914 - had to sell it when he became Sheriff's Deputy.
His brother, John Hill, was involved in a knife fight outside of Buckholts in 1917. John's son, Billie Hill,
bled to death under a tree. The trial drew much attention as it was held in the Cameron Courthouse in 1917.
Thanks, James Cryer
Standard reply to Mr Cryer. Email forwarded to MCHC members and others.
When the new Milam Co. Sheriff was elected a few years ago, he removed all historical information from the
Sheriff's Dept. website ...
As far as I know, there are no printed copies of all of those former pages on the Sheriff's Dept. website ...
So, all of that historical research has been lost ...
