Jim Burrow robbed Texas trains.
Jim Burrow was an Alabama native who followed his brother Rube into the train robbery business. The outlaws pulled numerous jobs between 1886 and 1888, most of them in their adopted state of Texas. Several of the robberies were not so successful, netting just a few hundred dollars from passengers. In 1888, a railroad conductor recognized them on board a train in Nashville, TN. A gunfight ensued. Rube got away; Jim was capture and jailed in Texas. Jim died just a few months later, of consumption.
