By the numbers-type summary, for those who don't care who played what, finds this one opening with the shooting of two prominent town-officials by Billy Carson ('Buster CRabbe'), who as a youth witnessed a band of outlaws, led by the prominent citizens, massacre his and Fuzzy's parents who were members of a wagon train heading west.
