The Squire has no known connections to:
Sheriff Dick Manton had outdrawn and disarmed the
criminal known as the Squire in a gunfight, after which the Squire was
arrested and swore revenge on him. Two weeks later with the territory

catch and shooting, and Dick downed the Squire again. Holly embraced

woman, and acknowledged Dick needed his guns after all.
