Outlaw Gangs Index

Here are most of the notable Old West Outlaw Gangs, their dates of “operation” and references to their “activities” as noted in Old West Daily Reader. Currently, there are 80 gangs listed here, in the Outlaw Gangs Index, however, ONLY those with a Red Link actually have a viable, current, Gang reference page. As each gang’s NEW page is completed enough to be useful, it will be linked into this page. Currently existing Timelines, pages and individual events from the WEEKS are also noted here and there, as this large project works through. Otherwise, check in PLAYERS or use the Main Search until the individual Gang Pages with red links, start showing up on this page… There are a few with NO listings yet.

Included on a gang’s NEW page (when published) will be a Timeline {TL} of the gang’s activities as noted in Old West Daily Reader, and an alphabetical list of the gang members (followed, if and when, they change gangs). As these events will appear in descending date order, they will constitute a Timeline {TL} for each outlaw. You might need to follow a few individuals to their next gang, to find all of their story.
Please be patient, these pages are complicated and slow to build. All of the pages are currently in process in various levels of completion, but I expect this project to take several years to complete…
