Western Lawman. Born Jesse Lee Hall in Lexington, North Carolina, he moved to Texas in 1869 and became a City Marshal of Sherman. In August 1876, he became the second in command of Leander McNelly's Special Forces, Texas Rangers. Serving in the Goliad region, he broke up a gang of vigilantes and became the acting commander of the Ranger company. He was made 1st Lieutenant of the Ranger company in 1877, gaining much acclaim suppressing outlaw cattle rustling and raids from across the Mexican border. After retiring a Captain from the Rangers in 1880, he served as agent to the Anadarko Indians and commanded a company in the First US Volunteer Infantry Regiment during the Spanish-American War in 1898. He is also a member of the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame.
