In addition to some horrible murders, the book contains bits and pieces of information about laws, officers, Caddo residents, etc. It is my hope that the information in my book will answer some questions for other researchers, provide closure for family genealogists, and provide further proof that the “good old days” were a myth. I know some of you will be disappointed that I didn’t find information about your family. Not all crimes were listed in the papers. Not all issues of the paper are available. Some that we do have are in terrible shape and sections are not readable. Please keep in mind that this is an ongoing process…I will post new findings here on my blog. And if you have specific dates and names for a crime please email me and I will be glad to search for more information.
