Bet he wouldn't reject a nomination even if it came from one of you GIRLS. This is bound to be an equal opportunity forum.

Probably one of the most proficient gunfighters. Accounts I've read indicate he practiced with his handguns (1851 Navys for most of his career, one of which I saw at the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, WY) religiously, and, until he got to Deadwood, was very careful about not providing his enemies an opportunity to blind side him. Don't think the manner in which he carved his first notches was anything to write home about.

Bill Tilghman and the other two he rode with often are by no means the least of lawmen. Greatly unknown outside the state of Oklahoma, cept to us Texas boys. This is a great choice.
Who were the other two and what was their nickname.

Howdy,

Heck Thomas and Chris Madsen were the other two. Their nickname
was "The Three Guardsmen". They worked under Marshal E.D. Nix who
was the U.S. Marshal from July 1893 to February 1896. If my memory
is correct.

The first western character I think of is naturally my cousin, John Wesley Hardin. Yes, he killed all those people, but we in the family can forgive that minor little character flaw. However later in his life he did something that went beyond the pale, something that was just too much for us to forgive or overlook. He became a lawyer!!

WIN73--
Who are you and where are you from?
I ask because, when growing up, I learned most of what I know from a Manning, in Polk County who was a cousin to John Wesley. This is where John killed several of the Troopers sent to arrest him after an altercation with a freed slave of about his same age. This was on the old Israel road outside of Livingston.
I would be interested in more detail.
Blessings
