Gratton Hanley "Grat" Dalton
Birth: Mar. 30, 1861
Douglas County
Kansas, USA
Death: Oct. 5, 1892
Montgomery County
Kansas, USA

Outlaw. Son of Lewis and Adeline Dalton, he was born near Lawrence, Kansas. He had a brief career as a lawman. While working as a deputy U.S. marshal, he got a bullet wound in his arm while attempting to arrest a suspect. He soon got a bad reputation as a lawman, and he decided to go to the other side of the law and started robbing trains and banks with the infamous Dalton Gang. On October 5, 1892, they rode into Coffeyville, Kansas and attempted to rob two banks, the Condon Bank and the First National Bank. They took about $25,000 in 12 minutes. The men were spotted and the town was quickly alerted. A shoot-out followed with claimed the lives of four outlaws Bob Dalton, Grat Dalton, Bill Powers and Dick Broadwell and four Coffeyville residents Lucius Baldwin, George Cubine, Charles Connelly and Charles Brown.
