The Williamson Gang is a gang led by Bill Williamson, featured in Red Dead Redemption.


Bill established his own gang after he left Dutch's Gang, not long after the botched robbery in 1906. Bill and his gang took over Fort Mercer in Rio Bravo

Red Dead Redemption

In 1911, John Marston confronts Bill Williamson and his gang but is shot, though a young woman named Bonnie MacFarlane and a ranch hand named Amos later save his life.


Marston, Marshal Johnson and his deputies look at the damage the Williamson Gang did to Ridgewood Farm

Bill and his gang later raid Ridgewood Farm killing men and abusing many women that live there, but there are a few survivors. Marston, Marshal Leigh Johnson, and the Marshal's posse rescue the remaining survivors at Ridgewood Farm, then chase Williamson to Mercer Station, but he flees. The posse is, however, able to successfully capture Bill's second in command, Norman Deek.

After Deek's capture, Outlaw on Horse, a member of the Williamson Gang, arrives at the sheriff's office in Armadillo explaining that Bonnie MacFarlane has been captured and will be hanged if they don't return Norman Deek at Tumbleweed. Marston gets ambushed by the Williamson Gang when he returns Norman at Tumbleweed, and Norman dies in the gunfight. Marston wipes out the remaining Gang members at Tumbleweed and rescues Bonnie.

Marston later recruits seven people to help him assault Fort Mercer and the Williamson Gang. The Williamson Gang was then eliminated, including the reinforcements that attempted to retake the fort. Bill managed to escape to Mexico with the help of Javier Escuella.

After the Williamson Gang left Fort Mercer, the Mexican Banditos took over with lots of stolen money; Marston can clear them out with the aid of Leon Galindo in his travels. Marston later travels to Mexico in pursuit of Bill and Javier. Marston kills or captures Javier, then kills Bill with the help of Abraham Reyes and his rebels after being betrayed by the Mexican Army.

After Bill's death, the Williamson Gang effectively disbands, having lost its hideout, its leader, and most of its members.
