Nazery Shot Hogan at Bone Lake
On last Sunday about 2:30, at Bone Pond, four miles west of here Mr.
John Hogan, a prominent man of this county, received a painful, if not
fatal; pistol shot wound, at the hands of Jake Nazery. This was the culmination
of a trouble that has been existing between these parties for about a year.
Sometime last fall Mr. Thomas Marshall stole Mr. Hoganís fourteen year
old daughter and started for Irwinville to get married. They were
overtaken, however, by Mr. Hogan and his friends and the girl were taken
away from young Marshall. Trouble was only prevented then by their
friends. Yesterday was their fist meeting since then and this old
trouble was renewed, when Mr. Hogan and Marshall came to blows. Hogan
had Marshall down and was administering a sever beating when Nazery, who
was a friend of Mashall, ran up and drew his pistol. Mr. Hogan seeing
this, let go of Marshall and knocked down Nazery, who immediately fired
upon him. He shot him three times only one bullet hitting him, which
struck him in the leg just bellow the thigh.
