Doc Midleton true west
Cattle Rustler, Doc Middleton

W.H.H. Llewellyn was a major player in the West.  In the late 1870s, he tracked down rustler Doc Middleton and his gang in Nebraska, Wyoming and the Dakotas.  He was rewarded with the job of Indian agent to the Chiricahua Apache in New Mexico.  That led to a position in the New Mexico territorial legislature.

In 1896, he helped investigate the murder of his friend Albert Fountain.

In 1898, he charged up San Juan Hill with Teddy Roosevelt in the Spanish-American War.  And a few years after that, Llewellyn was named New Mexico’s attorney general by Roosevelt.
