VIOLENT DEATHS OF U.S. MARSHALS

 

These are the Marshals, Deputies, Possemen and Guards that have died  "VIOLENT  DUTY DEATHS"  working for the United States Marshals ( This list is not The United States Marshal Service List). There are approximately 288 on this list. There are approximately another 300 names that are unconfirmed that are not included in this list until Robert Ernst or I can verify the information. The names that appear on this site were compiled by George Stumpf and Robert Ernst and are not  part of the United States Marshals Service Memorial or the names that appear on the U.S. Marshals website or the National Law Enforcement Memorial.

Currently a book is being published titled "Deadly Affrays" which will contain all of the names on this list as well the stories and photos pertaining to these Marshals and Deputies. Robert Ernst is the author.   It is due for release sometime  about October 15,  2005. Book will have 500 or more pages.

If anyone has any photos of the names on the list below , would you please contact me. Still need some for the book.

If anybody has any Newspapers articles or records of U.S. Marshals or Deputies that were killed and are able to verify that information, please e-mail me at circlestar@yahoo.com or mail information to Silverstar Collectables, P.O. Box  311, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82003
