ask-the-marshallI’d like to learn more about outlaw One-Eye Billy Moore, who may be a distant relative of mine.

One-Eye Billy Moore was a prominent New Mexico outlaw during the 1870-80s. As a shooter, he was a dead eye (no pun intended). He took pleasure in gunning down anyone who crossed him, including a black cowboy, two of his neighbors and even a family member before fleeing to Alaska and becoming a trapper.

Marshall Trimble is Arizona’s official historian.

His books include The Arizona Trilogy and Law of the Gun.
