This is my great grandfather, he with my grandfather and great uncle was murdered on Petros Mountain. My dad was 6 years old at the time. My grandmother was home in bed, she had a new born baby that was 2 days old.
My grandmother had a hard time raising her family.

God bless you and your boys/family, 93 years ago. Shame on the Governor Horton for pardoning 1 of your killers. Glad the next 2 officers he tried that on were able to survive and end his undeserved freedom.
