The Cheyenne State Leader for February 14, 1917. Trouble on the border.
Here we learn more about what happened on the border. Mexican forces of some sort had crossed into the US and murdered three on American soil. Ironically, the murdered men were Hispanics, but then that likely didn't mean much to the raiders. An abduction also occurred.
It was rumored that the leader of the expedition that had just returned from Mexico, John J. Pershing, was about to marry. That would prove not to be the case. While he'd come close on occasion, Gen. Pershing never married again and remained a widow for the balance of his life.
