From contributor Wendy McDaniel:
"There's a picture of Alonzo B. Webster in the book "Why the West Was Wild" by Nyle H. Miller, p.353. The index and numerous references in the book indicate he was mayor, and acting marshal of Dodge City in 1882. This Kansas Historical Society webpage has pictures of his funeral parade and lists his death as April 12, 1887. http://www.kansasmemory.org/item/303239. Census records on Ancestry.com list about 1846 as his birth year, and New York as his birth place.
Other Ancestry.com records are from Kansas, Grand Army of the Republic Post Reports, 1880-1940 and list his current occupation as Merchant, and his military service (33 months) from 1883-85.
p. 120 There is a synopsis of one of the difficulties Alonzo faced as Mayor in the book 'Age of the Gunfighter: Men and Weapons on the Frontier, 1840-1900' by Joseph G. Rosa has in 1881, and it includes a story about Bat Masterson and Luke Short."
