It about a person with a family motto or curse. "I gave fair warning, worry not where the bodies may fall" or something close to that.
There are great or powerful families trying to get this person Inheritance
Many attempt on there life.
May have been a deputy Marshal, or I am confusing it with another story.
The warning was given to a lady about abusing her kids, lady is wife a someone connected or friends with a senator. Senator wanted nothing to do with them.
Gave warning to a sniper in a tree around residence.
May be a child, or I am confusing it with another story again.
Thanks in advance for your time and effort in helping me find this story.
