Oliver "Ol" Yantis
Birth: 1869, USA
Death: Nov. 30, 1892
Logan County
Oklahoma, USA

Western Outlaw. He was a cotton farmer near Orlando, Oklahoma and was a member of both the Doolin and Dalton gangs. He was recruited by request of George “Bitter Creek” Newcomb. Newcomb was Bill Doolin’s friend and had a thing for Yantis' sister. Oliver was with the Doolin-Dalton gang when they robbed a train in Caney, Oklahoma on October 14, 1892 and a bank in Spearville, Kansas on November 1, 1892. On the morning of November 29, 1892, Sheriff C. M. Beeson, Deputy Marshall Tom Hueston and other lawmen arrived at the McGinn farm by Dodge City, Kansas to arrest him. When he came out of the house Beeson announcing that he had a warrant for him shouted, throw up your hands and surrender to the law. As he did so, he drew a revolver in the air and shot. The officers returned fire hitting him in the leg and in the stomach. Taking charge of his wounds, the officers took him to a hotel in Orlando and provided him with medical treatment but he died the next day.  (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
