George Parrot
Birth: unknown
Death: Mar. 22, 1881
Carbon County
Wyoming, USA

Western Outlaw. Known as Big Nose, he was lynched in Rawlins, Wyoming. He was the most hated man in the town. After he was killed, the body was donated to the local doctor who made a pair of shoes out of his inner thigh, a medicine bag out of his chest and an ashtray out of the top of his skull. In the 1950s his remains were found in a whiskey barrel where the doctor's office used to stand. All that was kept of his body was his skull. The shoes and skull are on display at the Carbon County Museum in Rawlins. Nobody knows what happened to the medicine bag.
