Do you have more information? I have never heard of a murder trial then, and my family has has been here since 1880. The only Aldermans that I know of in Brown Co. are burried in Grand Prairie cemetery, and lived in the Johnstown area. If you have more information, we have a genealogy meeting next week and will see if anyone else has heard of it. Newspaper micro film does not start until about 1886. The other newspaper that may have any information would have been in O'Neill, Holt Co., east of Brown Co. Not sure if any court records are available for that time period. Will check on that.
