Charley Pierce
Birth: unknown
Missouri, USA
Death: May 1, 1895
Pawnee County
Oklahoma, USA

Outlaw. Born about 1866 or 1867, Pierce was a member of the Dalton and later Doolin Gangs. After an unsuccesful stint at racing horses, Pierce turned outlaw. His first arrest was for whisky peddling. He served a one year sentence at the Ft Smith prison. Following his release he joined the Dalton Gang. Pierce missed the Dalton Gangs final robbery and destruction at Coffeyville. When Bill Doolin formed his gang, Pierce was one of the first members. Pierce was identified as participating in several train robberies with the Doolin Gang. With a $5000 reward offer on him, Pierce attempted to hide out at the Dunn brothers' ranch near Pawnee Oklahoma. For the reward money, the Dunn brothers ambushed and killed Pierce and Bitter Creek Newcomb, his friend and fellow outlaw. (bio by: Randy)
