In fact, I've been doing research via mail, phone, letter and computer with Gonzales for years and they have some of the best county records I have ever seen anywhere. They are very helpful at the archives, too. Gonzales in my mom's home town.Nan
Well, Slayden, Texas, is in Gonzales County, TX.
I checked the Gonzales County GenWeb (http://www.rootsweb .com/~txgonzal/) and found on http://www.rootsweb .com/~txgonzal/ inq1927.txt the following:
Boehm, Joe Jr., accidentally shot/killed himself, 7 Nov 1927
That line is a reference to an article in the Gonzales Inquirer of 7 Nov 1927. You might try to get the article through your library's interlibrary loan services.
Also, do a search on the Gonzales GenWeb site, as there were 9 other hits for "Boehm."
