Birth: 1870
Death: Apr. 20, 1876

Buffalo Bill's Son. Born in the winter of 1870, Kit Carson Cody was the doted upon son Buffalo Bill Cody. He appeared occasionally in his father's Wild West Show. In April of 1876, Louisa Cody telegraphed her husband that their son was seriously ill with scarlet fever. Cody caught the train home to Rochester, New York where his son died in his arms later that night. Buffalo Bill wrote of his only son: "He was too good for this world. We loved him too dearly he could not stay. And now his place is vacant and can never be filled, for he has gone to be a beautiful Angel in that better world, where he will wait for us." (bio by: Iola)
