John Harris Behan
Birth: Oct. 24, 1845
Jackson County
Missouri, USA
Death: Jun. 7, 1912
Pima County
Arizona, USA

John Behan was a strong Cowboy advocate and enemy of the Earp's and Doc Holliday, and on one occasion had Holliday arrested for taking part in a stage robbery that left two men dead. He was also the Cochise County Sheriff at the time of the legendary gunfight at the O.K. Corral. He died of Brights disease in Tucson. Like with Doc Holliday, the exact location of his grave has been lost. There is a memorial plaque in the Evergreen Cemetary in Tucson dedicated to this lawman and Cowboy sympathizer. (bio by: James Crawley)
