    Default The way you tell it defines who you are . . .

    Judy Walkman, a professional genealogy researcher in southern California, was doing some personal work on her own family tree. She discovered that Senator Harry Reid's great-great uncle, Remus Reid, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Montana in 1889. Both Judy and Harry Reid share this common ancestor. The only known photograph of Remus shows him standing on the gallows in Montana territory. On the back of the picture Judy obtained during her research is this inscription: 'Remus Reid, horse thief, sent to Montana Territorial Prison 1885, escaped 1887, robbed the Montana Flyer six times. Caught by Pinkerton detectives, convicted and hanged in 1889.' So Judy recently e-mailed Senator Harry Reid for information about their great-great uncle. Harry Reid's staff sent back the following biographical sketch for her genealogy research:

    "Remus Reid was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory. His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Montana railroad. Beginning in 1883, he devoted several years of his life to government service, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad. In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency. In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his honor when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed."

    Default Lol!!

    I remember this from a while ago...

    Subject: Little bit of history

    Laura Bush, the new First Lady, an amateur genealogical researcher, discovered that her husband's great-great uncle, Chadsworth Bush, a fellow lacking in character, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Texas in 1889.

    The only known photograph of this rascal shows him standing on the gallows. On the back of the picture is this inscription: "Chadsworth Bush, horse thief, sent to Texas prison in 1885,escaped 1887,robbed the Texas Flyer six times. Caught by Pinkerton detectives, convicted and hanged in 1889."

    After letting George W.Bush and his staff of professional image consultants peruse the findings, they decided to crop Chadworth's picture, scan it in an enlarged image, and edit it with image-processing software.

    The following biographical sketch was sent to the Associated Press: "Chadsworth Bush was a famous rancher in early Texas history. His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets, and he was involved in intimate dealings with the Texas railroad. Beginning in 1883,he devoted several years to service at a government facility, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad. In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency. In 1889,Chadsworth Bush passed away during an important civic function held in his honor when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed."

    Thus passed the very first "hanging Chad."
