News from December 1, 1871

From the Galveston Flakes Daily Bulletin, December 1, 1871, p. 4

Texas Items.
It has been rumored in our city for three or four days that one Doboy Taylor, son of Creed Taylor, and one of the "Taylor gang," so much talked of in Western Texas, had been killed in Kerr county by a young German named Gholson.  We have received no reliable information on the subject yet, and only published the rumor for what it is worth.

KGS note:  "Doboy" Taylor was shot and killed by Sim Holstein as a result of a quarrel. He is believed to be buried in Wilson County.
