Oh dear, Beth!
Is this not something? Can you imagine? Is this an episode from Keystone
George Scott, you say?
Did I tell you that I have become very good friends with an artist here on
the island. Her name is Lora and her maternal grandmother was a SCOTT from
the Ozarks. The family left the area of southern Missouri during the
Depression for northern California - where Lora was raised.
We are trying to figure out if my Scott ancestor and hers are related
somehow. She has her mother's genealogy here on the island and every time I
am at her home, I forget to ask to see it.
Could you call me on Saturday to remind me, Beth? LOL I will be seeing
Lora on Saturday!

> Jefferson, Wis., May 20. -- Three men said to be members of the once noted
Jesse James gang, were handed over to the Missouri officers by local
authorities yesterday. A week ago information was received here that the
authorities of Douglas county, Missouri, wanted three men on a charge of
murder and of robbing the Douglas county treasury at Ava of $7,000. May 14
Deputy Sheriff Herman Gralwie, at Watertown, identified and arrested a man
giving the name of F. S. Berry on the description furnished him from
Missouri. The next day two other men arrived on a train from the south and
inquired for the man who had been locked up, and were promptly taken in.
The officers in pursuit were upon the same train as the last two arrested,
but neither party was aware of the identity of their fellow travelers.
Sheriff Lyon of Douglas county arrived yesterday, recognized his men at
once, and took them back to Missouri to-day. The report that the criminals

credence, as the oldest of the men is less than 40 years of age, and the
youngest not over 25. Their names are Scott, Officer and Harlow. Each
carried a complete kit of burglar's tools and weapons.
