The following information comes from an article by George Ledbetter in the Chadron Record newspaper, Chadron, Nebraska: the 2012-Fur-Trade-Days Supplement.
“‘Flat Nose’ Curry moved to Chadron from Canada as a young man, but made his name as a membr of the ‘Wild Bunch’ outlaw gang that included Butch Casidy, Harry Longabaugh (aka the Sundance Kid) and Curry’s own nephew, Harvey Logan (aka Kid Curry). After several Bank and train robberies, Flat Nose was eventually killed by a posse in the Utah/Colorado border area and originally buried there. His family later had his body reinterred at Greenwood Cemetery.”
