Is that you canít prove Bill Brosius wasnít Curly Bill. Iíve listed numerous reasons in the past here, as well as in my book, why the only Bill Brosius or Brocius or Broscius, however you want to spell it, that was found in Texas in 1860 had a life that confirmed to the stories about him.

The truth is you have nothing new to offer except an empty envelope youíve acquired. I donít write this to be mean, just stating the facts.

Thatís where we are and will always be.


  • Please tell me you have more than . . .Steve Gatto, Tue Dec 11 11:09
    the information in your post to prove your assertions that this Curly Bill in the 1895 article was Curly Bill Brocius and that he was also William A. Brosius of Paris, Texas. Unless you have more... more

        The sad irony is that I'll end up either having to prove that William A. Brosius was Curly Bill Brocius or prove that he could not have been Curly Bill Brocius since you're not capable of doing it. I ... more

            about the research that I have done relating to William A. Brosius of Paris, Texas, is that 15 years since the publication of my book on "Curly Bill" in 2003, and after your so-called extensive... more

              And you have a vested interest in an inflexible and unrealistic opinion.
              • Right . . .Steve Gatto, Tue Dec 11 21:45
                All I'm asking for is some evidence that William A. Brosius is Curly Bill. Hell, he may actually be Curly Bill - the problem is you have not provided any evidence that he was the same man.

                  What youíre saying is you want a signed confession, witnessed and notarized and date and time stamped from William A. Brosius saying he was Curly Bill. You seek to impose perhaps, the standard of... more

                    So what your saying is that I set the bar too high? No wonder I haven't been able to confirm who Curly Bill Brocius was and where he was from all these years. So, what is the probability that a man... more

                      What Iím saying is your vaunted ďresearch disciplineĒ ballyhooed by some mindless followers isnít really a historical research discipline at all. Itís really just a legalistic approach to arguing and ... more
