New York, USA
|Death: ||Aug. 20, 1888|
Nat Kinney was born in New York, lived in Virginia, and spent time as a Union soldier in the Civil War. He drifted to Indiana, apparently spent a brief time in Colorado, and moved to Nosh Falls in eastern Kansas by 1875 where he was a small farmer. In 1877 at age 36, he moved to Topeka. Kinney was well remembered in Topeka for his brawling ruffian’s life. He founded the Bald Knobber group that swept across the Ozarks from 1883 to 1888. He was shot in 1888 by a member of the Anti-Bald Knobbers group.
