About Lonny Logan (aka, Lonnie Curry) [outlaw]
Lonny Logan, aka., Lonnie Curry, was the brother of Harvey Logan, aka., Kid Curry. He was a member of the Black Jack Ketcham and Wild Bunch gangs.
Lonny and his brothers, Johnny and Harvey, became outlaws after Harvey killed Powell "Pike" Landusky.
Miner/lawman Landusky, according to some reports of the day, confronted Harvey Logan, aka., Kid Cuury, and attacked him, believing Curry was involved romantically with Landusky's daughter, Elfie. Landusky then filed assault charges against Curry, who was arrested and beaten.
Two friends of Curry's, A.S. Lohman and Frank Plunkett, paid a $500 bond for Curry's release. Landusky's daughter, Elfie, later claimed it was Curry's brother, Lonny, with whom she had been involved. However, the confession came much too late. On December 27, 1894, Curry caught Landusky at a local saloon, and hit Landusky, stunning him. Curry, evidently believing the fight was over, began walking away. Landusky pulled his pistol and began threatening Curry, who was unarmed. Curry's friend and his brother's partner, Jim Thornhill, gave Curry his pistol. Landusky's gun jammed and Curry shot him dead.
Curry was arrested and at an inquest was released when it was judged that he acted in self defense. However, a formal trial was set. Curry believed he would not get a fair trial, because the judge was close friends with Landusky. For this reason, Curry left town.
Elfie Landusky later used the last name of Curry, alleging that Lonny Curry had gotten her pregnant.
On February 28, 1900, lawmen attempted to arrest Lonny Curry at his aunt's home. Lonny was killed in the shootout that followed, and his cousin Bob Lee was arrested for rustling and sent to prison in Wyoming. Kid Curry was now the last surviving Logan brother.
