    John Henry Pollock

    Policeman Pollock died of a gunshot wound he received two days earlier while searching for a murder suspect. Policeman Pollock joined a posse of 50 Deputy Sheriff's from around the area in a search for a suspect who shot and killed a livery driver earlier in the night. When Policeman Pollock and another Deputy encountered the suspect, Policeman Pollock and the deputy were shot and wounded. Policeman Pollock died two days later from his wounds. The other Deputy recovered from his wounds. The suspect was captured on Mountain Lake Road after he was shot and seriously wounded by a posse member a few hours later.
