I am studying the year 1874 in Texas. Can you tell me if a deputy in one county had the right to go into another county to arrest someone? There were no warrants for the person being arrested in the county in which he was arrested, if that makes a difference.

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.
