Doc Bockius was loosely connected with the Taylor-Sutton Feud in Gonzales County, TX, and with the Texas outlaw, John Wesley Hardin. He had been placed under arrest to prevent him from assisting Hardin after the May 1874 shootout. Doc was nearly lynched, but was saved by a friend who was a particularly large man. He placed Doc, who was small, on the back of his horse, hidden under his slicker, and rode out of town.
