Bonz, where did the murder happen? If close to Ardmore, the Daily Ardmorite would probably have reported it. Microfilmed copies can be viewed at the Ardmore Public Library, the Chickasaw Library, and the Oklahoma Historical Society.

Possible site of murder anywhere between Holdenville and Ardmore area. Possible he was buried near Gene Autry. This happened in 1885 how long could a body be held for burial? How far could a wagon travel in one day?
