    Emmett Dalton (1871 - 1937) was the youngest brother of the infamous Dalton Gang. Dalton's bank robbing career ended on October 5, 1892 in Coffeyville, Kansas when the gang tried to rob two banks at once. Four members of the gang were killed and Emmett was severely wounded. He was sentenced to life in prison but was pardoned after 14 years. He moved to California and became a real estate agent, actor and author.
