In 1883, John “King” Fisher was the acting sheriff of Uvalde County, Texas. He went after Jim and Tom Hannehan, who had held up a stagecoach. The brothers resisted; Fisher killed Tom, arrested Jim and recovered the loot.
Months later, Fisher was gunned down in San Antonio and buried in Uvalde. It’s reported the mother of the Hannehans came to his grave every year on the anniversary of her son’s death—then built a fire on top of it and did a dance.
