Most folks have Family Tree but I have a Family Bush. A bush can limbs that brake off and become Tumble Weeds and move around for years. I am all always researching and up dating. Come back and visit when you can sit a spell

    Lee Co, Texas History, Vol. 1: Horace Alsup, One morning in October 1879, old man Horace Alsup was waylaid and killed. He was perhaps a good man but his sympathies were with his son Wade, his son-in-laws Young Floyd, John Kuykendal and Bake Scott. These boys were all hanged on a tree in the Blue Branch neighborhood. They realized they had about ran their course and were preparing to leave the country. Just before pulling out they attended a dance at the home of Pat Airhart. Their plan was to kill Pat and ride off. While the dance was in progress, the windows and doors were suddenly filled with guns. A masked man then appeared at one of the doors and began calling the names of the boys wanted. The next morning down at Blue Branch, all these four boys hanging from a limb, their feet touching the ground. That ended the careers of some misguided youths, but it also saved Airhart's life.
    ****************************
    K. Stanley, a man who had been marked for death for a long time by the outlaw element, was walking with his gun over his shoulder one day. Suddenly, a gun fired and he was jarred considerably. He ran a hundred yards without looking back to see who was after him. When he heard no further shots, felt no bullets, he looked back and saw no one. He took his gun from his shoulder and found that the heat had detonated the cap and caused his own gun to discharge. He lived in fear long after the Knobb vigilantes, of which he was one of the captains, had ceased operations and disbanded. He never felt safe, and was not safe till he moved from the Knobb community many years after the turmoil had come to an end. When K. Stanley became ill and knew his time had come to go, he called his son twice to tell him something that had long been on his conscious, but each time he broke down and could never tell his secret. But he did tell his son-in-law and the son-in-law told the son. K. had been trying to confess that he K., had been the one who waylaid and kill old man Alsup down near Blue Branch. Strange how the approach of death goes deep into the secret chambers of a man's soul and causes him to try to relieve his conscience at the last moment. One reason for this is perhaps the desire to clear up mysteries so that no one else might have to bear the blame.
