Dalton Gang Graves

Final resting place of three members of the Dalton Gang.

[Julie Holmes-Taylor, 09/12/2015]

The three outlaws were killed on Oct. 5, 1892, when they tried to rob two Coffeyville banks. They were buried in a back corner of the town cemetery. Their only marker was the hitching rail where their horses were tied in "Death Alley." A simple headstone was added 15 years later.
