Grandad was very
interested in the life of outlaws. He owned a .44 caliber Russian made
Smith&Wesson that was confiiscated from a member of Jesse James Gang after a
robbery near Bardstown, Kentucky. He also left to me a double barrel Parker 12 guage shotgun that was borrowed and not returned. Pictures to follow. Poncho Villa was a favorite of his.
Here is a picture of Billy the Kid's grave taken in 1955. Another
