On October 5, 1892, the five-member Dalton Gang rode into Coffeyville planning to rob the two banks. George Cubine and Charles Brown, two of Coffeyville's citizens killed while defending their town against the notorious gang, are buried here in Elmwood Cemetery.
Other defenders killed were City Marshal Charles Connelly, buried in Independence, KS, and Lucius Baldwin, buried in Burlington, KS. Three other citizens were wounded.
The family of Dick Broadwell, the remaining gang member, took his body back to Hutchinson, KS.
Just north of here lies Bob Dalton, Grat Dalton, and Bill Powers, killed by Coffeyville citizens defending their two banks on October 5, 1892. The pipe near the grave, originally the hitching rail to which their horses were tied in Death Alley, was their only marker until until Emmett Dalton was pardoned - after serving fifteen years in the Kansas penitentiary. He installed the headstone you see today.
Also, 100 yards straight west is the grave of Frank Dalton, a brother, killed in 1887 in the line of duty as a U.S. Deputy Marshal.
