HECK THOMAS — Deputy Marshal Heck Thomas’s pursuit of the Dalton Gang may have contributed to the Coffeyville debacle that led to the gang’s demise. At least, Wells Fargo believed as much, telling Thomas (seated front row, at left), “We feel that your work, more than anything, brought about the extermination of this gang.” The gang members weren’t shy about their fear of this lawdog either, with Emmett Dalton admitting he saw Thomas as his “nemesis.” – Courtesy Robert G.

Five Members of the Wild Bunch - The gang consisted at various times of Bill Doolin, George "Bittercreek" Newcomb (aka "Slaughter Kid"), Charley Pierce, Oliver "Ol" Yantis, William Marion "Bill" Dalton, William "Tulsa Jack" Blake, Dan "Dynamite Dick" Clifton, Roy Daugherty (a.k.a. "Arkansas Tom Jones"), George "Red Buck" Waightman, Richard "Little Dick" West, and William F. "Little Bill" Raidler.
Richard Dick” Broadwell, a/k/a/ Texas Jack (?? – 1892) -- Broadwell was a member of the Dalton Gang, robbing banks and trains through out Kansas and Oklahoma. He was killed during the attempted double bank robbery in Coffeyville, Kansas on October 5, 1892. Broadwell came from a prominent family, who were no doubt, humiliated by his actions. The family claimed his body and returned with it to Hutchinson, Kansas. However, he was buried at night in an unmarked grave.........
