Synopsis:

At 27 William Davis "Dave" Allison became the youngest sheriff in the State of Texas, elected at Midland County in 1888.

Between times he was 6 times an elected sheriff; a member of the Texas Rangers and Arizona Rangers; Chief of Police at Roswell, New Mexico; personal bodyguard of Colonel William Cornell Green during the vicious 1906 mine strikes at Cananea, Mexico; livestock inspector; and he led the posse that caught and killed Mexican revolutionary Pascual Orozco in 1915.

About the Author:

A retired Special Agent with the U.S. Treasury Department, and a former city detective, Bob Alexander is a thirty-five year law enforcement veteran. His practical, no nonsense glimpses at the realities of frontier police work offers a fresh perspective to the reader delving into the goings-on of early day outlaws/lawmen. Mr. Alexander is also the author of two other biographies, "Dangerous Dan Tucker: New Mexico's Deadly Lawman" and "John H. Behan, Sacrificed Sheriff". His articles profiling often overlooked legitimate frontier characters frequently appear in historical journals. Bob lives near Maypearl, Texas where he continues to avidly pursue his research into the escapades and exploits of Old West personalities.
