Angelina Co Deputy Sheriff Ben F. Smith, d. 15 Sept 1924

Classification: Query
Surnames: Smith, Dunn
I am a volunteer researcher for the Texas Peace Officers Memorial. On 14 Sept 1924 Angelina County deputies Ben F. SMITH and Grover C. DUNN (who was also a special Texas ranger) were involved in a gun battle that resulted in the death of SMITH. DUNN was tried for murder but I do not know the disposition. I believe SMITH is on 1920 census born in either 1893 or 1895 and survived by his wife and two daughters. I would like to know his place of burial and actual date of birth.
