Manuscripts/Mixed Material [Mrs. Robt. Lindsey]
“One day, when all of the family was going home from church, and had just gotten out, a shot just missed Shorty Brown's son. That was how bold they were, and once when my dad was in a hospital at Brownwood, two men came in and chatted with dad. After they left, he motioned me to him, and told me that they were members of the ' Mob.' Their names were Sam Sparks at Algeria, and a man by the name of Hudson who lived near dad. He promised me that some day he'd tell me the whole story about the 'Mob,' but he died before he got to it.
“While I was in Brownwood with dad, I met a cowboy and married him. His name was Robert Lindsey. We've lived together ever since, but we haven't stayed for very long on a ranch since we married. We tried to run a stock farm near Brownwood not long ago, but it didn't pay, so we came to Fort Worth and are now running the Donna Hotel here.
