I added some to the blurb for the episode Trafton, but I didn't know how to get it to you if you were interested. I've copied the old data and added more of a summary:
gs: Victor French (Trafton) Clay Tanner (Capps) Bill Catching (Brant) Fred Stromoe (Prew) Sharon Acker (Tereese Farrell) John Dullaghan (Priest) Mike Mazurki (Whale) Marie Windsor (Mary K) Philip Carey (Bannion) Jon Lormer (Storekeeper) Paul Stevens (Reverend English) Patti Cohoon (Maria Farrell) Manuel Padilla, Jr. (Manuel) Glenn Strange (Sam) Ted Jordan (Burke)
Matt is out to find a gunfigther who killed two people. While stealing treasure from a Catholic mission, Trafton shoots a priest. Before the priest dies, he forgives Trafton, placing a bloody cross on the gunman's forehead. From that point, he is driven to make certain amends for his past bad deeds. People won't purchase his stolen booty since his comes from a church. He had raped a woman and she bore his daughter as a result. She moved to Dodge, claiming she was a widow and made a living as a seamstress. She has been terrified that he would someday return and people would find out the truth. Trafton gets to know his daughter a little, but he doesn't let her know the truth of who he is and what had happened between him and her mother. He tries to give back the golden church objects to the local church in Dodge, but the pastor who is not Catholic won't accept them. In the end, he pays for his sins by being killed by Matt. As he dies he forgives Matt for killing him, thus passing on his absolution.
