I read your article about the Bullfrog Valley Gang and would like to know if you have the names of the other fifteen men who were caught. Also, I wonder if you know about a woman who disappeared sometime between 1887 and 1900 in Crawford County named Dicey Roberts Parks. I had a family member who lied on every census until he died, and one of his brothers found a large bag of money in a tree. There is a lot more to this story.
