This lady outlaw was born Laura Bullion in 1876, in Knickerbocker, Texas. At the age of 14 she became a member of Butch Cassidy's Wild Bunch gang, and was the girlfriend of outlaw Ben "The Tall Texan" Kilpatrick.

Members of the gang referred to her as the "Rose of the Wild Bunch".

She would support the gang by selling stolen goods. On November 6, 1901, she was arrested on federal charges for 'forgery of signatures to banknotes' and in her possession had $8,500 dollars stolen during the Great Northern Train Robbery. On December 12, 1901, Ben Kilpatrick was also arrested. Both were convicted of robbery; Laura sentenced to five years and Ben receiving a twenty year sentence. Laura only served three and half years.

She died of heart disease on December 2, 1961.


Her gravemarker reads:

Freda Bullion Lincoln
Laura Bullion
The Thorny Rose
1876 - 1961
