Robert Newton “Bob” Ford (January 31, 1862 – June 8, 1892) was an American outlaw best known for killing his gang leader Jesse James in April 1882, to collect a reward. For about a year, Ford and his older brother Charles performed paid re-enactments of the killing at publicity events. Later he drifted around the West, operating saloons and dance halls.

Ford was shot to death at the age of 30 in Creede, Colorado, by Edward Capehart O’Kelley, who attacked him in Ford’s temporary tent saloon. Ford was first buried in Creede. His remains were later moved and reinterred at Richmond Cemetery in Richmond in Ray County, Missouri; “The man who shot Jesse James” was inscribed on his grave marker.
