Western Folk Figure. He killed "Wild Bill" Hickok in Deadwood, South Dakota on August 2,1876. His trial began on December 4,1876 in Yankton, the Dakota Territorial Capital, and was found guilty two days later. On March 1, 1877, Jack McCall was hanged and his body buried in the southwest corner of the Catholic Cemetery. According to cemetery historian, Father Joseph Holzhauser, Mc Call is one of two unmarked graves among several headstones from the 1870s and 1880s. Since McCall was Catholic and received last rites from a Sacred Heart Church priest this would seem likely.
