George Anderson

Is Scottish gardener, George Anderson, in the running along with Lee Hurley and Theodore Kuchtlak (sp?)

Was George Anderson one more watchman at the Highfields estate, just as Hurley and Kuchtlak were?

According to Anne Lindbergh in Hour of Gold, Hour of Lead and Locked Rooms and Open Doors, George was the Morrow Scottish gardener, and in one of those books she says that George was deeply touched by what happened to Daffin the Dog.

(According to Noel Behn, he implies that Daffin met his demise because of Anne's sister.)

Being Scottish, I wonder if George Anderson and Betty Gow commiserated together about being Lindbergh servants?

Do you think that George Anderson was a watchman, just as Lee Hurley and Theodore Kuchtlak were?

Also, Reverend Vincent Godfrey Burns claims in New Light on the Lindbergh Kidnapping Mystery that it was a Morrow gardener who confessed to him at his church on Palm Sunday 1932.

If Burns was telling the truth, could the gardener have been George?

(Although, George comes off as a really nice fellow in Anne's books!)

            Sorry for the delay. I've been searching for something I have that Mark put together which lists each and every past and present servant to include where they were from. Unfortunately I can't find it ... more

              Thanks for the list. Yes, the country where these servants originated from would be very helpful.
