Clyde, Yes, I am the daughter of Martha Jane Fluitt.
I have notes on Dr. Sam if you are interested. Most came from a book called "Caldwell Parish in Slices-Biographies" I wouldn't take everything as "the gospel"but a lot of it is factual or close. Other notes are from newspaper clippings and census records.
Here is the one on the shooting in full:
The Monroe News-Star Monday, August 8, 1910 Page 4, Column 4 Killed By Doctor. Section Foremen on the Louisiana Central, Shot. Columbia, La., Aug. 8. - It has just been reported here that Dr. B.S.Fluitt, a prominent physician of the Ninth Ward of this parish, shot a man by the name of Connelly at 1 o'clock this afternoon.The details of the affair are meager and it is not definitely known what the troouble was between the two men.Connelly was a section foremen employed by the Louisiana Central company of Clarks, this parish, on a team road which that company is building through the western portion of this parish, and is said to have boarded at one time with Dr. Fluitt.Late this afternoon the news came that Connelly was dead.An order for a coffin to be delivered in that vicinity seems to confirm the reports as to the results of the shooting.
Let me know if you would like for me to send more of my notes. KP
