    • Notes for RICHARD DALLIN WESTWOOD: Grand County Sheriffs An Enduring Legacy, Volume Ten, p.273 The early-day, hard-riding sheriffs rode mile after mile into the desert and hills in pursuit of outlaws. Many times the long arm of the law was asserted as a result of the lawman's courage. Walter Moore was the first sheriff after Grand County was formed. He was appointed to the position. Richard Dallin Westwood and his family moved to Moab February 14, 1890, and six months later he became Grand County's first elected sheriff. He served for four years and resigned; the county was too poor to pay him enough to feed his large family. An Enduring Legacy, Volume Ten, p.273 On May 20, 1900, Jesse Tyler, sheriff, and Deputy Jenkins were murdered in the Book Mountains by an outlaw by the name of Flatnose George. Westwood was again appointed sheriff to fill Tyler's term. He led the posse after the treacherous murderer, finally catching up with him. A gun battle ensued and Flatnose George was killed.11 Wiggins, Marvin E.
