"The father was a gloomy-looking, dull and morose individual, over sixty five years old; his name was Louis [sic] Dalton, and his Irish origin could be easily guessed at from the fact of his having named two of his sons after those great Hibernian patriots, Grattan and Emmett. . . . Father Louis Dalton, who had always proved a steadily unsuccessful man, and whose temper had been sourced to such a point that he had turned a regular man-hater, did not linger long upon the new plan [near Kingfisher, OK] but soon returned to Coffeyville, where he lived for a while doing odd jobs about the country, finally dying in the early part of 1890. . . . In Coffeyville, as we narrated at some length, the Daltons had long lived. There, in the Dalton's lot in the cemetery, lay buried Dalton, the father, a man of gruff disposition, but whose laziness and love of ease smothered a viciousness which lacked determination to become assertive. There, too, was buried Frank Dalton, . . ." The Dalton Brothers and Their Astounding Career of Crime, C. de Saint-Germain, 1892
