HURLEY, EDWARD - Ford County, Kansas | EDWARD HURLEY - Kansas Gravestone Photos


Boot Hill Cemetery
Ford County,

January 17, 1873
Ed was killed in a shooting spree. "Another terrible shooting occurred at Dodge City last Friday night. As usual, the affairs took place at one of the Woodhulleries that infests so many of the temporary outposts of a new railroad. There were some five or six men engaged in the melee, and all had been drinking more or less. How the trouble commence our reporter could not learn, but its
results are sufficiently deplorable. Two men named Barney Cullen and Edward Hurley were killed on the spot and another named Southers was wounded so dangerously that it is believed he will not recover." January 23, 1873 - The Kansas Daily Commonwealth
Note - The papers have been carrying much news of Victoria Wood hull who advocated free love, so it is supposed that a
Woodhullery would there fore be a brothel.
