Feud ends in double killing
PAYNE SPRINGS, Texas--Two men in their 60s shot and killed each other following an argument outside a rural grocery story here Thursday.
Texas Ranger Harold Alfred said Mount Vernon Uptergrove, 60, and Conus C. Cooper, 62, had been arguing several months over a money transaction and shot each other to death about 11:20 a.m. Thursday.
Alfred said witnesses told him one of the men was at the store when the other arrived, they argued and each fired one shot at the other, using a rifle and a shotgun.
He said he did not believe the men intentionally met at the store.
Henderson County Deputy Sheriff Choice Lovelady said both of the men were farmers.

As families go, the Uptergrove family seems passionate. How they direct that passion can be so positive (there's more than one doctor in the family) or negative (like the gun fight above). All in all, they are a most interesting wing of the family.
