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 have not really put much effort in the last 15 years to specifically do either since I've been reaching Curly Bill's activities before 1878 with Hurricane Bill Martin, Bob Martin, and Pony Diehl hoping it will lead me to his true identity. Nonetheless, I do have some significant periods of time to compare Curly Bill's whereabouts with William A. Brosius' movements. So I'll see if I can match up their timelines to see where Allie stands in the mix.

            And you have a vested interest in an inflexible and unrealistic opinion.

              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.

                  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
