James Lewis Dalton served an even 365 days under General Zachary Taylor as a fifer for Company I, Second Regiment of Kentucky Foot Volunteers during the Mexican War. Lewis DALTON came west from Kentucky to Missouri during the late 1840s. By 1850 Lewis DALTON was trading horses and running a small saloon at Westport (now Kansas City). Lewis and Adeline (YOUNGER) DALTON had 15 children. The Daltons moved to Coffeyville, Kansas in 1886 and lived there for a short time. Coffeyville, Kansas became the hometown of "the Dalton boys." They went on train robberies and gun battles throughout the West.
The Dalton Gang rode into Coffeyville, Montgomery County, Kansas on October 5, 1892 and attempted to rob two banks, the Condon Bank and the First National Bank. They took about $25,000 in 12 minutes. A shootout followed which claimed the lives of eight men: the outlaws, Grat and Bob Dalton, Dick Broadwell and Bill Powers; and four Coffeyville residents, Charles T. Connelly, Coffeyville city marshal (killed by Grat Dalton in "Death Alley"), Lucius M. Baldwin, George B. Cubine and Charles Brown. Three other townsmen were wounded.
The four dead members of the Dalton gang were held in the Coffeyville city jail. The next afternoon the outlaws were buried in black-varnished coffins made of wood. Grat and Bob Dalton and Bill Powers were buried in Elmwood Cemetery, Coffeyville, Kansas.
