HEINRICH W. HOFFMAN, DEPUTY - Deputy Hoffman died in the line of duty on February 19, 1893 at the age of 26. Deputy Hoffman is believed to have been purposely lured to a disturbance at a saloon in Fulshear, Texas on February 17, 1893 where he engaged in a gun fight with a suspect who was also fatally wounded. Deputy Hoffman died two days later on February 19, 1893 from his injuries. This incident was not known until 1996 when the information was obtained from a descendant of Deputy Hoffman.
