Bob Younger, American outlaw, 1876 (1954). From a photograph taken at the time of his capture. Together with his brothers Cole, John and Jim, Bob Younger formed part of the notorious James-Younger gang, with Jesse and Frank James. The gang robbed banks, stagecoaches and trains across the West between 1869 and 1876. John was killed in a gunfight with Pinkertons agents in 1874. The surviving three Youngers were wounded and captured by a posse after the gang robbed a bank in Northfield, Minnesota on 7th September 1876. All three were sentenced to life mprisonment after pleading guilty to their crimes in order to avoid hanging. Bob died of tuberculosis in prison in Stillwater, Minnesota in 1889.
