Abilene, Texas. Amnesia! Tonight!!
Bonnie and Clyde robbery of the piggly wiggly grocery store in Oct 13, 1932 Abilene , Texas.
During the period of 1932 to 1934, Clyde Champion Barrow was considered to be Number One Bandit in the State of Texas. With his female partner, Bonnie Elisabeth Parker they became infamous throughout the central part of the United States. Clyde Champion Barrow was born March 24, 1909 in Ellis County, Texas. Bonnie Elizabeth Parker was born October 1, 1910 in Rowena, Texas.
During their crime spree they traveled throughout the central United States robbing small stores for the most part, but robbed an occasional bank. Part of the time they had a male traveling companion. Their first male companion in crime was Raymond Hamilton. Later in 1932, William Daniel Jones became their traveling partner.
“The Barrow Gang” as this duo/ trio were often known was justly considered to be armed and dangerous. They killed nine law enforcement officers including two Texas Highway Patrolmen plus and undocumented number of civilians.
On October 13, 1932, the robbery of the Piggly Wiggly grocery store in Abilene, Texas was believed to be the work of Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker according to a Bulletin to all Peace Officers in the United States of America issued by Abilene Chief of Police, Ruck Sibley (my 2nd Cousin).
Clyde Barrow and Bonnie were killed in an ambush by law enforcement officers led by former Texas Ranger Frank Hamer in the early morning hours of May 23 1934 in Bienville Parish, Louisiana. Hamer was employed by the Texas Department of Corrections at the time. Officers had set up the ambush the night before.
