JUDGE AND MARK FLEMING
(At one time there was a small village in Comanche County and between
Comanche and Hamilton named Fleming.)
Old Judge Fleming, who was once our district judge, before my time, had
a brother named Mark. He was in the meat business in Comanche. One time he
came over to Hamilton with Benny Chalk after cattle. There was an
altercation with Jim Carter, who was a deputy sheriff at the time, and he
arrested Fleming. It seems that Carter was rough. Fleming told him if he
would take off his six shooter he would whip him. He did and Fleming gave
him a terrible beating.
