Ralph Jordan worked for his uncle, Mr. Nelson, at the bank in Bent Forks, Nebraska. He saw no future for himself as a bank officer in such a small western town. In 1870, he met Molly Gleason in St. Louis, who was working in saloon. Both felt they could do better than live their lives as they had been, and plotted a scheme so they disappear and enjoy a better life together. Upon returning to Bent Forks with Molly, they would wait until cattle season, when money was changing hands in large amounts. Once the bank safe held $100,000, Jordan would steal the money. They intended to find a drifter with a passing resemblance to Jordan, blow his face off with a shotgun, and leave the body dressed in Jordan's clothes so they wouldn't be followed.
One night in 1871, Ralph Jordan robbed his uncle's bank of $100,000. To make good his and Molly 's escape together, he intended to have Molly lure Bret Maverick out to a deserted farmhouse, where he would blow Bret's face off with a shotgun at point-blank range. Bret realized he was being set up in time to surprise Jordan earlier than expected. Unprepared for Bret's early arrival, Jordan pulled a gun on Bret. Jordan's shot missed, but Bret's return fire killed Jordan.
