Dear Ms. Denney,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The location of any court records that may have been retained regarding your grandfather’s case would depend on whether he was tried in a state court for violating a state law or in a federal court for violating a federal law.
For violations of Texas state laws, district courts established by the state legislature have original jurisdiction for felony criminal cases. For district court cases, contact the district clerk in the county in which the case was filed. In this case, it would be the Potter County District Clerk’s Office.
If instead he was tried for violation of a federal law, he would have been tried by one of the several U.S. district courts in Texas. To access these records, contact The National Archives at Fort Worth at email@example.com.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
