Sheriff Blackburn,
On today, the 160th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army.

Wow, I wonder what his middle name is.
He's a legend in my family, according to my aunt, who got it from her Blackburn uncle, my great uncle.

Thanks for posting this.
Funny how legends in the air end up having some merit.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 148th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace
