The Three Men


John Simpson Chisum (seated) -Born 8/16/1824 Approximate age in tintype: 58


Known as the Cattle King of the Pecos, John Chisum employed Billy the Kid during the Lincoln county war to fight off the many supporters of Chisum’s rival ranch, The House. The House emerged victorious, and Billy demanded his wages of $500 from Chisum. Chisum refused to pay Billy and in turn Billy began stealing cattle from Chisum.


John Chisum, being involved in local politics, played an integral role in helping elect Pat Garrett (the man who would eventually gun down and kill Billy the Kid.) Chisum had a score to settle with Billy, and with Barney Mason as Sheriff Garrett’s Deputy, the two could quite easily have been photographed together.



Chisum’s appearance in the tintype: “Chisum, whose face was scarred from a bout of smallpox in 1877, began to have other health problems.” (source: />

Barney Mason (Left)- Born 10/29/1848 Approximate age in tintype: 34


Mason joined Billy the Kid’s gang, The Rustlers sometime during 1879. On January 14, 1880 Mason and Garrett married their respect wives in a joint ceremony. (For reference; Abrams photo of Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett, Barney Mason, and Dave Rudabaugh is believed to have been taken that day). Soon after, Mason defected from the Rustlers and aided Sheriff Pat Garret, whom Chisum helped to elect, in hunting down Billy the Kid.


Mason was a turncoat, and shifted loyalty throughout his life between outlaws and lawmen.



William “Bill” Robert (right) -Born 1/27/1854 Approximate age in tintype: 28


Robert married Sallie Chisum, niece to John Chisum, twelve days after the joint weddings of Mason and Garret, on January 26, 1880.
