On this day in 1995, University of Texas Ex, political activist, historian, professor, rancher, cowboy J. Evetts Haley died in Midland, Texas at the age of 94. Born James Evetts Haley on 5 July, 1901 in Belton, Texas. I met Mr. Haley and his son Evetts. I have autographed copies of his books, The XIT Ranch of Texas and the Early Days of the Llano Estacado and Charles Goodnight: Cowman and Plainsman. My heroes have always been Cowboys. The Final Footprint –
Haley is buried in Moffatt Cemetery in Moffat, Texas. His grave is marked by a large engraved rock.
