Sheriff Walter C Mosier


Sheriff Mosier had gone to Mount Pleasant, Texas with N.J. Jacobs, a GM employee, to repossess a car and was returning with it on Feb. 16, 1937. Jacobs was driving the repossessed car followed by Mosier. As they approached Antlers, they entered a newly-graveled portion of the highway. A car ahead of them was leaving a heavy dust cloud so Jacobs pulled off the road to let the dust settle. Sheriff Mosier passed him and drove into the dust cloud, colliding head on with a truck. Sheriff Mosier died before arriving at a Hugo hospital.
