Deputy Sheriff George M. Doolittle was in the area of Lexington, Indian Territory, attempting to arrest Bluford Cox, who was from Lampasas County. Cox was wanted for the murder of Thomas Gardner of Williamson County in 1871. As Deputy Doolittle attempted to arrest Cox, Cox shot and killed the deputy.
