Date: September 2, 1840
On this day, gunfighter Clay Allison was born on a Tennessee farm. After serving in the Confederate Army during the Civil War, Allison moved to the Brazos River country in Texas. He soon signed on as a cowhand with Oliver Loving and Charles Goodnight and was probably among the eighteen herders on the 1866 drive that blazed the Goodnight-Loving Trail. In 1870 he left Texas and was involved in a number of violent incidents, including lynchings, brawls and gunfights, in Colorado, Kansas, and New Mexico during the 1870s. By 1880 Allison had settled as a rancher in Hemphill County, Texas. Though he married and served as a juror, his reputation as the "Wolf of the Washita" was kept alive by reports of his unusual antics. Once he was said to have ridden nude through the streets of Mobeetie. I In December 1886 he bought a ranch near Pecos and became involved in area politics. Allison died in a wagon accident the following year.
