From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

George "Red Buck" Waightman (1868? - October 2, 1895) was an Old West outlaw, and member of the Doolin-Dalton gang.

Waightman is believed to have been born in Texas, but that has never been confirmed. He is known to have been a cowboy prior to meeting Bill Doolin and Bill Dalton in 1892. He joined their gang shortly thereafter, taking part in numerous bank robberies and train robberies over the next three years. By 1894, however, US Marshals were hot on the gangs trail, and several members had been captured or killed. The gang split up to make things more difficult for the Marshals. Waightman was eventually tracked down, on October 2, by Deputy US Marshal Chris Madsen, and in the ensuing shootout Waightman was killed.
