Sad but true. Several years back, one of the preeminent facial recognition experts discredited Brushy Bill Roberts as Billy the Kid based on facial features that change over time and those that do not.
Paulita Maxwell lived to be 85 yrs old & she swore & never wavered from the story that William Bonney/ BtK died in the Maxwell home that night. What she did deny was that he was killed in her bedroom & the body moved as most historians believe. She was pregnant & married soon after to give the baby a father's name; that marriage didn't last. Another thing she never endorsed was that William H. Roberts was
William H. Bonney/BtK.

Paulita Maxwell's grandson ( & possibly the grandson of BtK) lived until 2005.

Courtright was killed in a gunfight with another well known gunfighter and co-owner of the White Elephant Saloon, Luke Short.

This is the reason why The Lounge is so addictive. The quips might not be spontaneous, none the less they hit the funny button, right dead centre.
Thank you Sir, I shall accept that as a compliment. And, might I add, I always enjoy reading your posts whether they're humorous, informative, and/or a showcase for your lovely wife's talents as a clothing maker and the results of her labors.

Your compliments are, as always, generous to a fault, thank you. My missus is going to be very busy during the winter months. There's a pair of khaki trousers and a camouflage shirt on the production line. Watch this space.
