Hi,

Not sure if you found all you wanted but the Ethel Dakin your enquiring about was my Grandmother. She passed away a while back. We all loved her to pieces. What did you want to know?

In the Place Family reunion in 1995?, a letter she wrote on her grandfather's request in 1916 to Etta Place regarding bringing their father to Canada was recalled. That Etta Place I believe was The Etta Place, the wife of the Sundance Kid. I have been searching for her for a long time. A descendant that lives in Edmonton told me that Etta did come to Canada in 1921, after William Henry Place died. BTW, he is buried in the Willow River Cem in Hudson Wi, where Elzetta is buried. I met Don Place in Viking a few years ago, a great guy. Hope he is still with us. Thanks for any help. Jim Lynch in Palmer Alaska

Sundance also had ties to Alberta and also was believed to have frequented the "Big Muddy" region of Saskatchewan. I remember an Alberta rancher saying that Butch Cassidy had lived in Alberta after his alleged death. Also a documentary on TV showed that DNA tests showed that the outlaws killed in South America were not a match to either family. Read this page. Butch (My grandfather nicknamed me after Cassidy) http://ourroots.ca/page.aspx?id=862472&qryID=f264697...

Thank you for the reply. It is fairly well agreed that Sundance didn't make it back to the US, not so much for Butch. One story has him in Kanab Utah in July of 1941, stopped for running a stop sign. The state trooper that stopped him was the son in law of John Kitchen, a retired cattleman from Utah. After his shift he went to his father in laws house, and there was the man he had stopped earlier. He was introduced as Butch Cassidy. Quin Sabe? I am intrigued by the mention of an Alberta rancher that had Butch living in Alberta, who was he? jim in Palmer Alaska

I don't remember the name of the fellow it was many years ago. Sask. and Alberta were flooded with Americans in the late 1800s and early 1900s looking for a new start. My own grandpa came from S. Dakota and often said some had left reputations behind and I know most of them brought their "shooter" with them including Grandpa ( his was a 44 Colt with a hair trigger my dad found out one day). According to a news story the granddaughter of Jesse James was living in our nearby town of St. Walburg, Sk. The NWM Police left people alone if they didn't cause trouble in Canada, so Butch or Sundance could have lived here with no problem. In a doc. on TV recently a cousin of Butch said his family was visited by him in the 1920s, but who really knows. Butch
