Many "Thanks" to the United States Border Patrol for the February 1, 2018 Reflection for our G.Grandfather and Town Marshal James Washington Hammond. He had fathered six children before he was killed, the oldest of whom was my Grandfather, James Columbus Hammond. All of their lives were greatly affected by this senseless tragedy.
