Thomas Tobin

Guard Tobin succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained eight days earlier while searching for an escaped convict. The shot was fired by a member of the sheriff's posse who mistook Guard Tobin for the escapee.

Unbeknownst to the posse, the escapee had already been captured and returned to the penitentiary.
