Robert Leroy Parker (April 13, 1866 – November 7, 1908), better known as Butch Cassidy, was a notorious American train robber, bank robber, and leader of the Wild Bunch gang in the American Old West.

After pursuing a career in crime for several years in the United States, the pressures of being pursued, notably by the Pinkerton detective agency, forced him to flee with an accomplice, Harry Alonzo Longabaugh, known as the Sundance Kid, and Longabaugh's girlfriend, Etta Place. The trio fled first to Argentina and then to Bolivia, where Parker and Longabaugh were probably killed in a shootout in November 1908.

    A Wayward Saint

    Twenty years after arriving in Utah as a handcart pioneer, Robert Parker stood in a priesthood circle in the log church in Beaver, Utah, to give his first grandchild the name of Robert LeRoy parker and a blassing. Few in that Mormon chapel in 1866 could imagine the time would come when that baby boy would volunterily give up that name. His younger brothers ans a sister would proudly bear the name Parker in Mormon history. The sister, Lulu Parker Betenson, would even become a Utah Legislator, but the baby Robert would cast off the name to become one of the West's most famous outlaws, Butch Cassidy. There is some irony in the fact that his birth date has generally been listed as April 6, considered by Latter-day revelation as the date of the birth of Christ. Family records, however, give the birth date as a week later -- on Friday the Thirteenth."
