Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

The player can acquire wanted posters of Joshua Brown and Bart Cavanaugh from Sheriff Farley, and bring them back as bounties, with a $40 reward for Joshua (if alive), and a $60 reward for Bart (if alive or dead). After doing so, Farley tells the player that there will be no more wanted posters in the town per the mayor's request, who believes that they are a deterrent to tourists visiting the town.

Vernon Farley is still the sheriff of Strawberry by 1907.
