William Caldwell's death scaled the lips
of a man who probably could, had he

the fearful strife which raged between tho
Jaybird and Woodpecker factions in Fort
Bend county than any other person. He
was a negro far above tho usual standard
of his race In point of Intelligence. The
warfaro which existed for a couple of
years between theso two political factions
exterminated wholo families and scores ot
men wero murdered during tho reign. But
Caldwell is tho only person who met a Ju
dicial death on account of it Ilo killed
Dr. J. M. Shamblcn on tho night of July
81, 1888. This was tho first murder com
