Re: Bushwacker Bill Wilson's Death
Thanks for the info. I have found articles from Texas which mentions all you stated. I have been able to find several newpaper accounts and court transcripts of the trial. William Blackmore and John Thompson were the ones responsible for the murder and were hung in the courthouse yard at Sherman on March 26,1869. The big question now for me is where was he buried. I have one source who claims family members from Missouri did see the marked grave of Bill Wilson. The body was not removed to Missouri so it should still be in Texas.
