- Jack "Diamondfield" Davis, a Nevada prospector who stuck it rich after being pardoned for an Idaho murder in 1902. When he was working for a cattle company, Diamondfield was accused of the murder of two sheepherders. He was sentenced to hang, but his execution date was postponed and then changed to life inprisonment after two other men confessed to the crime. Diamondfield was pardoned by Idaho Governor Frank W. Hunt in December of 1902.
