I haven't found the answer. The year was 1874 in Comanche, Texas. There were warrants for John Wesley Hardin in other counties, obviously, but none in Comanche County. A deputy in Brown County did quite a bit of talking about how the sheriff of Comanche County wasn't tough (or whatever) enough to arrest JWH. The Brown County deputy came to Comanche County and ended up getting killed, but my question is did he have the authority to come into Comanche County and make an arrest.

It is not for academic purposes other than I've taught this incident for years and always believed that the Brown County deputy had no jurisdiction in Comanche County; however, that belief has been challenged, and suddenly I realize that I might be very wrong in how jurisdiction "worked" in 1874. I don't want anyone to have to spend a lot of time on this. I just happened upon your site and thought someone might know the answer.
I don't have a clue what we are doing here. If this is too hard or requires too much time, let's just forget it.
However, I don't want to pay you $24 for no answer. :)
Yea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks so much. I just love it when I'm right! Seriously, thank you very much!
