Harvey Alexander "Kid Curry" Logan
Birth: 1867
Death: Jun. 17, 1904

Western Outlaw. Born in Tama County, Iowa, he was an orphaned cowboy who grew up to be a rustler, gunman, bank and train robber. In the early 1880s, along with his brothers Logan was on a cattle drive to Colorado when due to trouble with the law headed to Wyoming. Soon he was located on a horse ranch in Montana, when he was in a confrontation with a miner who he shot and killed. He fled to New Mexico, where he joined Tom "Black Jack" Ketchum's gang and robbed trains in 1886. In April, 1897, he formed his own gang and was involved in the killing of Deputy Sheriff at Powder River, Wyoming, where they were rustling horses. His gang robbed a bank in Belle Fourche, South Dakota, were captured and jailed but soon escaped. Moving on he hooked up with the Sundance Kid and Butch Cassidy's Wild Bunch gang and robbed the Union Pacific Railroad overland flyer in Wyoming, in June 1899. Logan went with Butch Cassidy to New Mexico, robbed trains, rustled cattle and in a gun battle killed Sheriff Ed Farr at Turkey Creek. On the run again, he formed up with members of the Wild Bunch gang in May 1900, he killed Grand County Sheriff John Tyler and his deputy Sam Jenkins in fight at Moab, Utah. With the gang, he robbed a train near Tipton, Wyoming, in August 1900 and returned north robbed a Union Pacific train near Wagner, Montana, in June 1901. The gang split up, going the various directions, but Logan remained in the territory seeking revenge when he shot and killed outlaw Jim Winters, who had killed his brother John back in 1896. He then headed to Tennessee, where he was passing bad banks notes and when they tried to apprehend him, he shot and killed a Knoxville policeman in December 1901. Convicted of multiple charges, he was sentenced to prison and escaped from jail on June 27, 1903. On June 7, 1904, he participated in robbing the Denver & Rio Grande train near Parachute, Colorado. Two days later, a posse caught up with the outlaws and rather than go to prison, Logan took his own life at age 37. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
