Western Outlaw. He was the brother of Cole, John and Bob Younger, and a member of the James-Younger Gang which was former by his brother Cole with Frank and Jesse James. Jim Younger joined the Confederate Army during the Civil War and served with Quantrill's Raiders. In 1864, he was captured by Union troops and was imprisoned until the end of the war. After the war, he worked on various ranches until he joined the James-Younger Gang in 1873. He participated in the group's banditry until his brother was killed at Roscoe, Missouri in 1864. He left the gang, went west where he worked a ranch in San Luis Obispo, California. In 1876, he returned to the gang and was a part of the Northfield Minnesota bank robbery. During that robbery he was shot, captured and sentenced to life imprisonment. Paroled in 1901, he became engaged to his long time lover Alix Mueller, but due to the terms of his parole he couldn't marry, so he committed suicide at age 54. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
