About Pitkin Barnes Taylor

Pitkin Taylor (18??-1873) - A gunman and brother to renowned Texas Ranger, Creed Taylor, Pitkin led the Taylors in the Sutton-Taylor feud which began in 1868. The Sutton faction, many of which were lawmen, had been aggressive in killing off the Taylors and Pitkin's death would be no different. Typical of the methods often utilized by the Sutton group, they tricked him into coming out of his house in the October of 1872. Hiding in a cornfield, Sutton sympathizers lured him out the door by ringing a cowbell. When Pitkin came out of the house he was shot and seriously wounded. Though he initially survived, he died six months later. His son, Jim Taylor, swore revenge upon his killers, further fueling the feud.
