Character description

Nicolas Gustafson (1846?-1876): Swedish immigrant to America. He had settled near Northfield, Minnesota, and was in the town when the James/Younger Gang attempted to rob the bank there. It was said that he was warned to get out of the way, but lacked the English to understand (or perhaps was drunk), so he was shot in the head, dying four days later.
