The American Mafia - Kansas City Crime Bosses
If the earlier ones listed are not any more accurate than the later ones, the Mafia list is a joke. They always pick a person to look like they are running things to keep the heat off the real Don. The Civellas never ran anything. I have no idea who runs it now and don't want to know. I had an uncle who was in it before his death.

The only information I could dig up on them is that they were pro-union during the war, they bred racehorses, pretty much owned the town and were known to dry gulch their enemies.



The Birch Gang 1840s
This gang operated in Illinois and also terrorized neighboring states including Missouri.
After the gang was busted up the remaining members fled across the river to Missouri and never went back.
