As the story goes … in 1883, Henry Ziegland of Honey Grove, Texas broke off his engagement to Miss Maysie Tichnor.
Understandably devastated … the young lady committed suicide. When Maysie’s brother heard the tragic news, he travelled to Ziegland’s farm … pulled out a pistol, shot Henry … and then shot himself!
However, Ziegland did not die! The bullet only grazed his face … before lodging itself into a tree.
20 years later, as Ziegland was chopping down a tree, he found the axe he was using couldn’t do the job!
So … Henry bored a few holes into the tree and placed a small amount of dynamite into the holes. To be careful … Henry stepped about 50 feet away … and set off the explosion.
The bullet, which had lodged itself into that same tree, some 20 years earlier, was blown out of the tree … and struck Ziegland in his left temple – killing him, instantly!
