Oct. 8, 1892 Topeka Daily Capital

The deadly raid occurred October 5, 1892. Below is a partial transcription of the portion regarding the family members.

No mention of Bea or Elizabeth or Phillips.


All of the Members Not Killed Are at Coffeyville


The Daltons.

COFFEYVILLE, Kan., Oct. 7 – William Dalton, ex-member of the California legislature and a peaceable, law-abiding man, arrived here to-day to take charge of his dead brothers and see Emmet, the wounded one, who sent for him.

..... His mother, brothers Ben and Simon, and sister, Mrs. Whipple, arrived this morning from Kingfisher.


It is not true that William Dalton served in the California legislature.

The article says all the family members were in Coffeyville, but it does not say they are all listed. Children who may have been present but are not mentioned are Cole and Lit Dalton, who were living in California, Leona Dalton, who lived with her mother in Kingfisher, and Nancy "Nannie" Dalton Clute who also lived in Kingfisher.

Why is Bea Elizabeth Phillips never mentioned in any article about the Dalton family?
