Everett Smith

Town Marshal Everett Smith was shot and killed shortly after he entered a saloon in Olla.

Excitement over a fire that had destroyed half the town was subsiding when Marshal Smith entered the saloon to order it closed, as the license had expired. As shots rang out, outsiders rushed in and found him dead on the floor. He had been shot six times. His killer was never identified.
