T M (Tom) Peeler, d. 18 May 1897

Classification: Query
Surnames: Peeler, Harrell
I am a volunteer researcher for the Texas Peace Officers Memorial. We received info on the death of a Texas & Southwest Cattle Raisers Association Field Inspector named Tom PEELER who was killed in 1897. I have located an appeals court case on Atascosa Co Constable W C HARRELL who shot and killed T M PEELER on the 18th of May 1897. Constable HARRELL pistol whipped PEELER in a saloon in Campbellton and later charged him with arson. PEELER was acquitted & charged Constable HARRELL with malicious prosecution. On the day of the trial Constable HARRELL shot PEELER in the head & killed him. HARRELL was convicted on 2nd degree murder & sentenced to 30 years in prison. I would like to know if PEELER was a peace officer or field inspector for TSCRA. Where PEELER is buried? Thanks in advance.
