The Musgrove Gang, which was headed by Lee Musgrove, were known as thieves and rustlers who ranged from Texas to Wyoming to Kansas.

Noted for their brutality, they were said to have killed at least  a dozen people during their raids. However, Colorado lawman Dave Cook went after the gang, and one at a time, either killed or arrested every one of them. Lee Musgrove was finally caught by Cook in Wyoming Territory and was jailed in Denver. On November 23, 1868 a crowd stormed the jail and hung the outlaw. The Musgrove Corral treasure trove of gold and silver coins is rumored to be buried along the Cache la Poudre River.
