Having stolen horses since he was 14 years old, Doc Middleton was known as the “King of Horse Thieves.” He even spent some time in prison in Cheyenne for it. He had a saloon in Gordon, Nebraska, Ardmore, SD (also served as Marshall there), but went to Orin Junction, WY, near Douglas, to open what would be his last one. According to Bill Barlow’s Budget, Doc was arrested in October of 1913 for selling alcohol without a license. He was sentenced to serve time in jail where he died in December.
