M. C. Benton, b. abt. 1860 in TN; married to Edith King in SANTA FE; then moved to Cochise Co., AZ. While living in Cochise County (Tombstone, AZ), he attended the wedding of Jesse James Benton and Bennie Eaker. Information about M. C. Benton was located in the book "Stalwarts of Cochise Co., AZ" and also the newspaper clipping of Jesse James Benton's wedding in 1900. Question: Who is this M. C. Benton? Can anyone help? He was at one time the SHERIFF of SANTA FE. Are there any archives regarding law enforcement officers of that period? Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
