Reflections for Deputy U.S. Marshal Dan Maples

I am a distant cousin of Deputy Dan Maples. I recently learned of him during my family ancestry searches. I am proud to add him & his family to our Maples Ancestry. Thank you for your service and sacrifice to our country.

I was always told that Marshall Dan Maples was my great-uncle when I was young. Although it could be possible, I think that the age and dates do not work out since my grandfather was borne in 1881. So I assume that great-great uncle is correct. On the other hand, he was certainly a Great uncle. I had lived here in Bentonville for a number of years before I realized that he was buried here in the city cemetery. I recently took my cousin"s son to the grave site. Several years ago I had a part time job in the summers (while I was a teacher) with the Corps of Engineers. After the first summer, they sent me to a school, and then handed me a badge that said: Law Enforcement Officer U.S.A. My first thought was to wonder if Marshall Dan would be embarrassed when I put it on. Maybe it helped when I was sworn in as a Judge several years later.

Dan Maples was one of the early members of modern law enforcement who died in the line of duty. Unfortunately, I believe that this will go on to be one of the unsolved crimes, or until a final decision is made. He was my Great Uncle. May ALL First Responders stay safe!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and twenty-second 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 who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003). Unfortunately, I had to add the name of another friend recently. Deputy Jeffery Hewitt, Buncombe County (NC) Sheriff’s Department, E.O.W. April 4, 2004.

I want to honor all of those who gave their life in the line of duty. Although your death was many many years ago, you are still a hero.

God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....
