Horrell-Higgins Feud Was A Bloody Affair

Under pressure from Major John B. Jones of the Texas Rangers, the surviving members of the Horrell and Higgins clans signed a formal treaty on August 2, 1877 ending their Lampasas feud.

But within the year Tom and Mart Horrell were executed in their jail cells by a Meridian mob.  Brother Sam, last of the five siblings left alive, moved to Oregon, and Pink, leader of the HIggins faction, lived out his days as a ranch detective in the Panhandle.
