Mrs Dunne, The Gunslinger and the Fearless Frogman

Margaret Behan Dunne (1806-1891), the postmistress of Kildare Town, had two remarkable nephews. Johnny Behan served as Sheriff of Cochise County in the Arizona Territory during the famous gunfight at the O.K. Corral, while Paul Boyton was a showman known as the Fearless Frogman, who navigated over 25,000 miles of rivers and waterways in a pioneering rubber suit.
