Deputy U.S. Marshal Heck Thomas (1850 - 1912)
Are those gator gaiters?! What a great pic. He also has some serious hardware.
Same thing I was wondering.
I believe you are correct, Robie. Good eye! I was looking at his neck tie in that pic. A lot of the pics in the McCubbin collection have rarely been published before, until the collection was recently broken up at auction after Robert McCubbin's death.
I also noticed the tie. There is a lot to see in that pic. I also wondered where he carry's his pistol ammo. But obviously, his rifle is his main weapon. And what about that hat?! Is that cool or what!
Neat photos. 7.5" Colt looks to have 2 piece pearl grips, a deluxe pistol grip Winchester '86 in 45-90.
Likely in a double row of loops under his hand on the left side on the buckle. Love those big old 45-90s for his deluxe '86.
Something like this reproduction.....although this one has 30-30 loops (shown on top) which is obviously not what Thomas was using. Not an uncommon set of leather for the day.
Came across on my FaceBook feed today. Clark Gable in a gull-wing Mercedes.
Postal Carrier. 1907.
Jesus Silva at the approximate age of 85, ~1930.
Silva lived his entire life in Fort Sumner, NM & knew William H. Bonney (Billy the Kid) from the time he arrived. He helped move the body from the house, built the coffin, dug the grave & served as one of the pallbearers to bury Billy.
Billy's hat was often thought to have been a Top Hat but was actually a tall open crown hat with a crown crease from the side. The style was quite popular as evidenced by Silva's hat in the pic.
Deputy US Marshal Eli Hickman "Heck" Bruner (1859 - 1899)
On July 21, 1899 Bruner drowned swimming across the Grand River in the Oklahoma territory while attempting to bring a driverless ferry back across so that his posse could board.
Bruner was part of the 1887 posse of US Marshals killing Ned Christie in the Indian Nation of Oklahoma territory.
The 1908 reunion of former Deputy U.S. Marshals who served under Judge Isaac Charles Parker in the Federal Court of The Western District of Arkansas.
RIP a Great Scot. A wee dram of Laphroig tonight, Slainte!
Wow, didn't know.
Goodbye, old man. Time finally took what the bad guys never could.
Sombrero Jack, a street tough kid with a gang in Silver City, NM. The first time William H. Bonney (Billy the Kid) was ever arrested it was with the gang, for stealing clothes from a Chinese laundry. Not much other personal info is known about Sombrero Jack.
Unusual hat for LBJ.
He couldn’t help but make it resemble something more familiar.
Do those side dents touch each other?
Guess he wasn't a film noir type guy.
You're kidding, right?
