Summary
John Coffee Hays was a soldier, surveyor, Ranger, officer in the Mexican War, and explorer, Tennessee and Mississppi were already part of him. He was one of the keymen who maintained the Republic of Texas and then helped make it into a state. Yet he left San Antopnio for the Gila River country to head an Indian agency, and went on to California, where he was a sheriff, Federal surveyor general, and town developer before he entered his long period as gentleman ranchman and capitalist, to say nothing of his influence in politics and his exemplary life
