Doom of the Outlaws of Pegleg Station
Marker Text: Here the climax of a western track-down occurred on Jan. 18, 1878, when Texas Rangers killed suspected murderer Dick Dublin, member of a gang of outlaws.
Although a friend yelled for him to run, Dublin was shot (150 yds. S) as the intrepid James B. Gillett and 3 other Rangers rushed his hide-out (60 yds.E).
Dick's brothers (Role and Dell), Mack Potter, and Rube Boyce were captured after a partner of the gang turned informer.
Three of them (plus two others) were convicted Aug. 23-24, 1880, of the 1877 robbery of the U.S. Mail at Pegleg Station. (1969)
