When I use the term “cowboy”, I use it loosely. Not the cowboy in the literal since of doing nothing but rodeos. This man was the first recognized Black deputy US Marshall west of the Mississippi River.
He is an uncle of the first Black Federal Administration Law Judge.
He was a slave and upon freedom, whether it was from running away or being freed, he went to Arkansas. He married and had 10 children.
To add to his accolades, he spoke several “Indian” dialects.
