In the 1920’s and 30’s on both my paternal and maternal side I had two great grandmothers who were shot to death one several times by there husbands in Texas.
Both great grandfathers were tried and convicted and served time at Huntsville Prison and became trustees. Both men had previously murdered one other person as well. In the 1940’s Governor Allen Shiver pardoned both men, upon release they remarried and started new families.
I have no knowledge if the two new each other while serving there prison sentence at Huntsville.
I’m currently writing my great grandmothers story and have twenty pages so far. I hope its completed by October in time for Domestic violence awareness month. It may be titled “The Yellow Rose”.
