Four members of the gang were killed - only Emmett Dalton survived his wounds and spent 14 years in prison.

In 1909, John was 21 years old when Polish physician and medical researcher Paul Ehrlich found a cure for syphilis, which was a prevalent (but undiscussed) disease. He found that an arsenic compound completely cured syphilis within 3 weeks.
