Clay Allison was a very interesting figure from all accounts:

 

"He never killed a man that did not need killing."

 

------ inscription on the grave marker in Pecos, Texas, of cattle rancher, cattle broker, and occasional gunfighter Clay Allison. For all his gunfighting, Allison died at the age of 46 when he was hauling a wagon load of supplies and the load shifted, causing a sack of grain to fall from the wagon. Allison fell from the wagon as he tried to catch it, and a wagon wheel rolled over him, breaking his neck. He was buried the next day in Pecos Cemetery.

Beauty is only skin deep but Texas is to the bone.
