Jesse and Frank James have their outlaw cousins the Youngers and the Youngers are related to the Cave Family.

I would be surprised if they are not related to the Caves that lived in Lone Jack Mo at the time of the Civil War. Lone Jack was a hotbed for guerrilla activity given it's proximity and local support for guerrilla activities. James', Younger's, Dalton's and Clement's were all related and local to Lone Jack.
