My great grandfather George L. Mann worked for the Sheriff and was with Sheriff Robinson when he was killed. I just finished reading my great grandfathers account. He was interviewed by Grace Kelley in Sept 1937 for the Oklahoma pioneer history.

"Dick Farr was sent to arrest a negro for having a pint of whiskey. This negro went into the house and told Dick not to come in. Dick tried to bump the door open with his shoulder. The negro shot through the door and hit him in the arm, so Dick went back to the Sheriff's office in the council house. Sheriff Edgar Robertson got a saddle gun, put his hat on and started up the street. We knew where he was going. I asked him if he wanted any company. We went to the negro's house where we saw a curtain shake. The sheriff shot through the curtain but didn't kill the negro. The next shot was by the negro and it hit Edgar in the center of the forehead. He went down like a hog, never knowing what hit him. That turned Okmulgee upside down."
