HICKOK, James Butler "Wild Bill" [1837-1876] -- American frontiersman

Relationship to me: 6C5
HICKOCK family Outline Descent Tree(s) ODT
Contents:

A colorful character, he was at various times: a scout for the army, a teamster for a stage company, a sharpshooter for Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, a lawman, a gambler. It was the latter activity that did him in. He was shot in the back whilst playing poker in Saloon #10 in Deadwood, Dakota Territory. He was holding a hand of aces and eights, ever after known as the "dead man's hand". (The name of the saloon speaks volumes!)  -30-
