A former gang member paints a more accurate picture of The James Gang.

BLACK BART (1829-1888?)

He was born in England and did all his stagecoach robbing in California but he had lived in Hannibal Missouri and his wife still lived there while he was in prison. He never killed anyone, never robbed the passengers, it was the mail and the strongboxes that he took. He would leave poems behind like these;

" So here I've stood while wind and rain,
Have set the trees a sobbin
And risked my life for that damn stage,
That wasn't worth the robbin. "


" I've labored long and hard for bread,
For honor and for riches,
But on my corns too long,
You fine haired sons of bitches. "

When he was released from prison a reporter asked him if he was going to rob more stages and he told him he was done committing crimes. Another reporter asked him if he was going to write anymore poems and he said, " Didn't you hear me? I said I was done committing crimes. "

HANGINGS


Another category I found while researching the old west was hangings.
There were quite a few of them and you can read about some of them on the internet. It was treated like a sporting event and spectators came from miles away to watch. Here are a few descriptions I read about on some of the hangings.

A black outlaw was about to be hanged and was asked if he had any last words and he said, " I came here to hang not talk ."

Another prisoner was entertaining the crowd by singing and doing an Irish Jig while waiting to be dropped.

Boone Helm couldn't wait for them to kick the box out from under him and jumped off by himself.

An Italian immigrant was being hung for stealing a horse and told the sheriff that he never saw a hanging before and wanted to know if he would suffer much. The sheriff told him that it would be over in seconds, but they used too much rope and his feet touched the ground and it took him 20 minutes to choke to death. The sheriff became so sick from it that he quit his job the next day.


THE LAST EXECUTION BY HANGING IN MISSOURI

Some more notable hangings,


BLACK JACK KETCHUM

They didn't know what they were doing and his head came off.

Ever wonder what the actual guns looked like that these famous killers of the old west used? Some were mighty primitive looking for that time period.

CANYON DIABLO

This was a tough town. It's first marshal pinned his badge on at 3pm and was laid out for burial at 8pm the same day. They had seven marshals in 14 months,the last one ran away. It had a population of 2000 but most people used aliases because they were wanted for crimes.

When Capone got back to Chicago after meeting with some St.Louis gang members he told his friend " Those guys are cuckoo " He ended up using them for the St.Valentines Day Massacre. A lot of these St.Louis assassins were recruited by Chicago,Detroit and New York gangs to do their killing.

DAVID " CHIPPY " ROBINSON (1897-1967)

Killing people made him laugh.

He was called " The Dynamite Fiend "

He moved to St.Louis and married the daughter of a millionaire but he still had to kill over 80 people in a scheme to collect insurance. Some people are never satisfied.

HENRY LEE MOORE (1874-1960?) b. Missouri

I don't think I would have hired this guy for anything,He just looked like he had an ax to grind.

St.Louis seems like Mayberry compared to this Missouri town.
