There was also The Wild Bunch (1969), which was set in 1913.
And 1970's more light-hearted Ballad of Cable Hogue, also from Sam Peckinpah and set around the same time. I would guess those two would be the primary inspirations, like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid for Alias Smith and Jones and Coogan's Bluff for McCloud. A template like "Cable" would seem almost perfect for Garner's Maverick and Support Your Local Sheriff characters. Just a guess, though.
Makes me wonder what inspired 'Hec Ramsey.' A Columbo style police detective circa 1900 (starring Richard Boone).
