    U.S. Marshal Frank M. Canton (Joe Horner) Document Signed "F. M. Canton" as U.S. Deputy Marshal, on a pay voucher for George Horner for four days service, October 25, 1895, Oklahoma Territory. One page, partly-printed, 8.5" x 14". Most of the document is in Canton's hand, boldly signed by him four different times, and also signed by "E. D. Nix" as U. S. Marshal for Oklahoma Territory.

    Born Joe Horner, Canton changed his name to escape his outlaw past, which included killing a Buffalo Soldier during a quarrel in a saloon during the 1870s. He was sheriff and deputy U.S. Marshal in Johnson County, Wyoming, and a major figure as an enforcer on the side of the Wyoming Stock Grower's Association. A feared gunman of the time.

    Condition: Fine, holes at top left, archival taped on folds.
