The grave marker of Bob Dalton, Grat Dalton, and Bill Power, located in Elmwood Cemetery, Coffeyville, Kansas. On October 5, 1892, the three Dalton brothers, Bob, Grot, and Emmett, with Tim Evans and Dick Broadwell, rode into Coffeyville. They robbed the town's two banks of nearly $25,000 before being ambushed by angry town citizens. Warned of the Dalton gang's plans, townspeople opened fire on the gang, killing four members and wounding Emmett. Four Coffeyville citizens also lost their lives in the gun battle.
