I was lead to looking up Brownsville, TX, Jesse James and the KGC by an America Unearthed episode overnight, in which I learned so much about a time I've always been interested in. Mention of a town in TX just made it more fascinating and I wanted to check out the veracity of the information. I will be reading everything on this site.
Thirty years ago I lived with my ex-husband in Newburg, Huntingdon Co, PA. My 75 yr old father-in-law told stories of Jesse James and Cole Younger often visiting nearby Todd Township. I thought that was pretty neat and wondered if it was really true. Now I find out that Jesse also (maybe) lived not-all-that-far from where I live now. Hm-m-m. . .
My present husband and I left PA in an RV 16 years ago and 14 years ago settled in Deep East Texas where I raise Miniature Schnauzers and work constantly on upgrading and maintaining an old house on an acre of land that I have no desire to ever leave. Prior to this I never lived in one place for more than 6 years, a gypsy at heart.
I'm looking forward to reading everything here.
