Billy the Kid’s real name was William Henry McCarty.  When and where he was born, or who or what happened to his father is not known. It’s estimated that he was born around 1860-61, possibly in New York. History traces the Kid as a youngster in Indiana in the late 1860s and in Wichita, Kansas in 1870. His mother, Catherine McCarty, was a widow and single mother to Billy and his younger brother Joseph, born in 1863. In 1871, Catherine was diagnosed with Tuberculosis.
