Gunfight At The OK Corral (October 26, 1881)
Tombstone Arizona

The Missouri connections;

C.S Fly (born in Andrew County Missouri 1849-1901) built his photography studio in Tombstone on Fremont street. During the shootout, Sheriff John Behan (born in Westport Missouri 1844-1912) was in the studio taking cover. Ike Clanton (born in Callaway County Missouri 1847-1887) came running into the studio for safety shouting he was unarmed. Fly went outside and disarmed the dying Billy Clanton. C.S Fly became famous for the photographs he took when he accompanied General Crook at the surrender of Geronimo. Fly was elected Sheriff of Cochise County 1n 1895 and served two years. And of course everyone knows that Wyatt Earp had lived in Lamar Missouri.

LOS ANGELES HERALD October 25 1905


" Desperate criminal caught after fierce fight in Chicago hotel "

Prisoner is nephew of former Governor of Missouri,he is wanted for many crimes and has been twice sentenced to hang. George Webster,an all-around international criminal,a son of prominent parents living in Buffalo and a nephew of a former governor of Missouri,was captured after a pistol fight with officers in a barricaded room at 6 am today. Webster is one of the best known and most desperate criminals in the United States. He has been twice convicted of murder and sentenced to hang but in both instances escaped as the result of the influence of his influential Missouri relatives. On two other occasions he has been sentenced to life terms of imprisonment. After his capture he was identified by employees of a teaming company as the leader of a trio which held them up,bound and gagged them and then robbed the safe in the company's office some weeks ago. " If you hadn't the drop on me," said Webster to the arresting officers, " I'd have killed one of you at least, I suppose the least I'll get now is life,and I'd rather hang. Nobody knows my real name and never shall." A jealous woman gave away his whereabout to the Chief of police who instructed the arresting officers to " shoot to kill " if Webster resisted arrest.
