Many of these photos are from the photo album that belonged to Paulita Maxwell who was the alleged love of Billy the Kid, and the daughter of wealthy land baron, Lucian B. Maxwell. Billy was killed in the room of her brother Pete Maxwell in Fort Sumner. Paulita and the family servant Delevina were the first people to the scene when Billy was shot by Sheriff Pat Garrett. Delevina was the first to enter into the room to verify whether Billy was indeed dead.
