In Crawford....three old partners pause for a photo
This 1909 photograph shows (L-R) Doc Middleton, Truman Moody and John Bruer. Middleton, whose real name was reportedly James Riley, was a "well-known outlaw" across the region in his early years. The Nebraska Memories project noted that Bruer and Moody had backed Doc Middleton in a "saloon venture" at Ardmore South Dakota in the early 1900s. Middleton died four years after this photograph was taken.
