Glover, Rufus B.
United States Marshal service
Deputy U.S. Marshal
Born About 1856 – Died 31 January 1892

In September 1891 Catarino Garza formed a small army called Garzistas in South Texas to overthrow Mexican President Porfirio Diaz in what was called the “Garza Troubles.” He made three attempts to invade Mexico and caused President Diaz to complain that the U.S. to enforce its neutrality laws. Texas Ranger Companies joined the Third Cavalry of the US Army under the command of Captain George Chase in pursuit of Garza and his revolutionaries along the Texas-Mexico border in South Texas. Captain Chase sent three Deputy U.S. Marshals, Lino Cuellar, Juan Moreno and Rufus Glover, to scout ahead of his troops. Near dusk the three Deputy Marshals were ambushed at Soledad Wells on William Hubbard’s ranch near Benavides, 25 miles from San Diego in Duval County. Glover was shot in the back and fell from his horse dead. One of Garza’s men was reported killed. Moreno’s horse was also killed. The two other Deputy Marshals escaped. Glover’s brother, Deputy Marshals and U.S. troops went to the scene to recover his body and found a pile of cartridges behind a ledge of rocks near where Glover fell.

Glover had been elected three times as the district and county clerk of Duval County, Texas. He was buried in Duval County. He was survived by wife, child and a brother.
