Date: Wednesday, January 05, 2000. Subject: Lea County Query. Relative: DAUGHERTY, Albert. Family folklore has it that (great-) Uncle Albert was the Sheriff of Hobbs, NM. He was married but we don't know to who. We have a picture of him on his wedding day in 1917 pushing his new bride down the street in a wheelbarrow. The story goes that she was a vagrant⁄runaway he had arrested. There weren't facilities to hold her in jail so he took her to his house - where she stayed long enough to get people to talking. The ladies in town said it was shameful for an old man (he was 30-40, we think) to have a young girl living with him so he married her. To show the townsfolk he'd made her his bride he pushed her through town in the wheelbarrow. Can anyone give me any information on him, his wife or resources to find information concerning his law enforcement career in Hobbs? I would appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks, Rita Ellerd, phone (409) 299-1141, e-mail email@example.com
