John Hardin is credited with forty killing in stand-up gunfights, ambushes and
running battles on horseback.  It had been said that whenever Hardin rode out
of a town, deadmen were always left behind.  By the time he reached his 20th
birthday, John was regarded as one of the deadliest gunfighters in the West,
had killed a number of men, had a confrontation with Wild Bill Hickok in
Abilene, and was wanted by the Texas State police and the Texas Rangers.

John Wesley Hardon was killed by John Selman, Sr. when Selman shot Hardin in
