Today in 1881, Sheriff Pat Garrett shot Billy the Kid to death in New Mexico.  Billy is one of several Unconnected Black Sheep profiles on WikiTree. Wouldn't you love to be the person who connects him to our family tree? 

Did you know that there is a Outlaws project on WikiTree?  Check it out if you are interested in some of the more notorious members of our family tree.

Or maybe you're interested in the Wild West project?  This includes the outlaws, lawmen, performers, and "soiled doves" of the era. 

Wikitree has projects for every interest!

I just ran the Relationship Finder, and thank God he is not related - my people fell on the side of Law & Order and some died in the Line of Duty in the Old West.

Patricia, you may be interested in the Wild West project, since this includes lawmen such as Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, Allan Pinkerton, and others.
