          This is excellent, Kenny. Newton is the quintessential lawman of the Old West. He deserves his due!
          • Yeah, I think you are right.K.t.K., Wed Jun 09 14:51
            BTW, some months ago I posted that photo of Newt (posed with hunting rifle) on that huge David de Haas Old West Facebook page. Just in case you didn't have it.

              Do you have a link to that picture?

                Tonya, you might want to investigate pictures of C.J. "Buffalo" Jones. There was a reason why I didn't use that picture in my presentation at TTR last year.

                Tonya, here you go. Hope to see you at TTR this year. Best to you and your family. Mike https://www.facebook.com/groups/261849524484480/permalink/688404095162352

                  Thank you. Kenny and Mike for sharing this. Very interesting and important. Just looking at it, I am certain it is Newton, but what is the provenance, Mr. Vail?
