Coincidence or Fate?: "Shot Through the Heart"

(With apologies to Bon Jovi)

Henry Ziegland jilted his Texas girlfriend in 1883.  The poor girl was so heartbroken that she took her own life.  Attempting to avenge her death, the girl's brother shot Ziegland.  Believing he had killed him, the girl's brother then took his own life by shooting himself in the head.  However, the bullet fired at Ziegland only grazed his cheek and embedded itself in a tree.

In 1913, Ziegland was trying to cut down that very tree, but found it so difficult that he resorted to using dynamite.  The explosion sent the bullet his ex-girlfriend's brother had fired at him 30 years earlier flying through Henry Ziegland's head, killing him instantly.
