John Henry Brock was tried by the State of Texas in 1912 for murder in the death of his mistress one morning when the two of them were walking to breakfast in “Guy Town,” the bawdy district of Austin, Texas. The episode was a tragedy for the two of them and their families. However, it was not the sole instance of trial and judgment during Brock’s existence. This book first presents the record of the State of Texas trial, and then it explores Brock’s life before and after that trial. Considerable information about the environment and culture of Winn Parish, Louisiana, where Brock was born, lived, and married, together with observations about the lives of his parents and their influences upon him provide insights about his personality and outlook. Brock's experience is offered as emblematic of the trials and judgments of all humankind. About the Author: At age nine Robert Stephen Carter became a stepson of a granddaughter of John Henry Brock. During the years he lived in Austin with his father and stepmother, he had several occasions to enjoy the generous attention, hospitality and kindness of his stepmother’s mother, a daughter of John Henry Brock. He hopes that this work will provide useful context and warrant some degree of positive perspective regarding a sad period in the life of John Henry Brock. If it also promotes reflection upon other lives as well, so much the better.
