Did Sheriff Pat Garrett and Wyatt Earp ever meet or have any professional communication? They lived and became famous in the same year. Their jurisdictions were not that far apart, neither in distance nor in time.

Good question, Bobby, and you’re right, they were contemporaries and weren’t far apart geographically, but as far as I can tell, the two never met. There’s a chance they could have known each other while buffalo hunting in the 1870s, but there’s no proof of such a meeting.
