A Grave for Broadwell

Where is the Dalton Gang member buried?

Where is Dick Broadwell (at right in photo)? He was one of the four Dalton Gang members killed in the aborted Coffeyville, Kansas raid of October 5, 1892. Initially all four were buried in a common grave. But within a few days, members of Broadwell’s family came to take him home—to Hutchinson, Kansas. Where he ended up is unclear. Either he was reburied in a local cemetery or a family plot. In either case, Broadwell’s final resting place is unmarked and not remembered.
