Daly Clan Mini-Book Excerpt
One particularly infamous bearer of the Daly name was the American Wild West outlaw John Daly.
Born in 1839, he arrived in Nevada territory in the early 1860s and, with his gun slinging band of fellow outlaws feared as the Daly Gang, terrorised the peaceful citizens of the townships of Aurora and Carson City for two years.
But it was not until the murder in February 1864, of townsman William R. Johnston, who had killed Daly Gang member Jim Sears, that Nevada citizens plucked up the courage to band together and form the Citizens’ Protective Association.
This move sounded the death knell of the Daly Gang – with John Daly and three other gang members captured and summarily hanged within only a week of the formation of the association.
