Doc Scurlock

A cowboy, gunfighter, and founding member of the Regulators during New Mexico’s Lincoln County War, Scurlock began his life as the sixth of 11 children in Tallapoosa County, Alabama. He was born on January 11, 1850 to Priestly Norman Scurlock and Esther Ann Brown. 

When he grew up, he studied medicine for a brief time in New Orleans, Louisiana where he received his nickname. However, when he thought he had contracted tuberculosis, he went to Mexico, hoping that it would be cured.
