Thank you so very much for this additional information. This confirms a hunch I had. As early as 1912, he was in trouble for "accidentally" shooting a man he claimed was a burglar. The charges were dropped as he had the authorities fooled. Within a few short months; he was arrested, admitting to 15 burglaries. He was sent to St. Cloud Reformatory in St. Cloud, Minnesota.

He seemed to have a penchant for gold watches and bragging. A stolen gold watch helped convict him back in 1912.

Its definitely and interesting and tragic life story that had a ripple affect on the lives of others.

Again, thanks so very much for your generous help.

Best regards
