Also, there might be Grover Bishop,(1894-1980) a quite colorful gentlemen of Cherokee Co.  He was the depty/sherriff back in the 1903"s and reputed to be very effective lawman bringing in outlaws. Reportedly killed more outlaws than Wyatt Earp.  There are several stories(whether true or not) and books regarding him.  Beside him is his wife, Carrie,  and a woman who lived with Bishop taking care of him and his wife for several years.
