Rare minutes of rest at the ranch

He was taken to Lincoln, accompanied by heavy security. Lawyers feared that someone would try to save Billy, but there was no one to save him – all his close friends had been killed by then. Now he could only rely on himself. Among his guards were people who had fought on the side of Dolan in the past: Bill Matthews, Bob Olinger and John Kinney, deservedly nicknamed the “king of cattle stealers.” Along the way, they did not miss the slightest opportunity to mock the captive.

Since Lincoln did not have its own prison, Billy was chained up on the second floor of the courthouse [26]. There were no bars on windows or doors, but Pat Garrett and his two assistants, Bob Olinger and James Bell, vigilantly guarded. For greater reliability, Billy was additionally chained to an iron ring driven into the floor in the center of the room. Continue reading

The Jesse Myth

At the end of the war, Edwards chose not to give up the Yankees and fled to Mexico, from where he returned only after the passions had subsided. Having become an influential journalist, he supported James in every way and was the first to print Jesse’s letters in his newspapers, giving him the opportunity to openly express his political views.

Gang jesse james

Jesse James was born on September 5, 1847 in County Clay, Missouri. He did not remember his father, Robert James. When the boy was two years old, gold was found in California, and Robert went on a long journey, hoping to get rich and bring his family there. But he, like many other gold prospectors, was killed by pneumonia. So his wife Zerelda Mimms was left alone with two young sons – Alexander Franklin [9] and Jesse. She was pregnant when her husband left, and a few months later gave birth to a daughter, whom she named Susanne.

It was hard for one to pull so many mouths, and soon she got married again, but the marriage did not work out. The third marriage, concluded by her in 1855, was successful. Doctor Ruben Samuels was a wealthy man and owned a huge estate. From this union, two more daughters and a son, Archie, born mentally retarded, were born. Ruben turned out to be a worthy husband and a good father. His estate flourished, black slaves helped the family with the household … Continue reading
