Ted Nugent has moved to a ranch on Bosque River below Valley Mills and
his son attends Waco High School. Ted still plays in his Country
Western band and writes some political and outdoors sports articles for
Waco Tribune Herald. Is he a descendant of Erath County Nugents? He
moved here from out of state.
Also, som,e action blamed on lynch mobs was done by Central Texas Rangers
under John R. Baylor, and others by George . Baylor of West Texas. Dr.
McNeil of Stephenville rode with George chasing Geronimo into Waco
with help of Mexican Army, then back into Arizona where they lost him.
My mom and Daisy McNeil Stone were cousins through Carey- Stone
connections and shared a Rest home room in Stephenville Nursing Home.
Cloye Stone Stuart was across the hall from them. Daisy used to run a
used book stock in front of McNeil Barber shop , and was the cashier
for barbers and bath house room for country folk or travellers to
clean up when coming from work to town shopping.

On October 25, 1872, Joseph Brady McDow, Noble Hardin, James Coates,
James Latham, and Lafayette Latham were lynched by 37 men from Erath
and Comanche counties. As a result of this and another incident in
Comanche county five days earlier, Stephenville was placed under
martial law. The Adjutant General, Frank L. Britton, reported on
the condition of affairs in Erath and Comanche counties on December
4, 1872. I have read and been told that Thomas L. Nugent defended
these men, but have found no record of the trial. The original
document is located at Baylor University. I have a copy of the
document that looks like it came out of a book. Has anyone seen the
original document? Does anyone know if any records of the trial
exist? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
