The most famous outlaw-gunfighter of the frontier southwest was Willian Bonney,
alias "Billy the Kid." He was involved in the Lincoln County War in the
New Mexico Territory and was killed by Pat Garrett in Ft Sumner, New Mexico in
July of 1881. The Kid is buried in the old military cemetery just south
of the town of Fort Sumner.

In 1950 in the town of Hico, Texas, Oliver P. "Ollie" Roberts, aka "Brushy Bill,"
claimed that he was Billy the Kid. No proof was ever offered. However, Hico
now has a Billy The Kid Museum and statue in town.
