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.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
