On the way to Meade, Kansas

Headed to far SW part of Kansas to the town of Meade. This small town’s claim to fame is where the Dalton Gang used to hide out.

The Dalton Gang was a group of outlaws in the American Old West during 1890–1892. It was also known as The Dalton Brothers because three of its members were brothers. The gang specialized in bank and train robberies. During an attempted bank robbery in Coffeyville, Kansas in 1892, two of the brothers and two other gang members were killed; Emmett survived and was captured, tried, and convicted. He was paroled after serving 14 years in prison.


The oldest brother Frank had been a Deputy U.S. Marshal, but was killed in 1887. In 1890, Gratton “Grat”, Bob, and Emmett turned to crime after not being paid as lawmen. Their middle brother William M. “Bill” Dalton also had a career as an outlaw, but he rode with the Wild Bunch. The gangs were related through their mother to the Younger brothers, who rode with Jesse James. The Daltons were active later and independently of the James-Younger Gang.
