(1868 - 1911)

— Hansford County Sheriff —

Killed while assisting United States marshal making arrest in boundary line dispute in the northwestern part of county.
Like many frontier sheriffs, he was a cowboy and farmer, chosen for office out of regard for his standing as a good citizen.
Came to Hansford, 1906. Bought a section of land. Eager to see area develop, he ran a livery stable. This provided for land prospectors from the north and east the only means of travel to seek out and buy property.
He married Sophia Snowden; had 10 children. Was sheriff form 1908 until his untimely death.
