Would it be possible, when you post something like this, to give a citation? Where & when was it published. Dan

    A few years previous to the opening of this story, at the time when I was on the line of promotion on the police force of St. Louis, I had a personal encounter with Logan. At that time I had just... more

              Vince, Thanks. That is one strange tale, "Bandit Captured the Sleuth: Detective Who Had Run the Notorious Harvey Logan to Earth Had Thrilling Experience." No byline, but reprinted from the Railroad... more

                no no--not after wagner. He says it was before logan was famous, and it seems to be for something Logan did in St louis. My best guess is that would date it to 1896 when there is some anecdotal... more

                  Vince, You are correct. I misread it. In the second column, after introducing Harvey Logan as a famous bandit he goes back in time, to a "few years previous to the opening of this story." That's as... more

        Or it could have been an unincorporated place like Navalencia, where my grandmother lived. Small township never on any map but it existed 30 miles or so east of here. I dunno otherwise

          Ft Pierce is in Florida. Not in Wyoming. There is nothing with this name in or near the HIW. It was made up story.

            Well, I I found a newspaper references to it from 1908. Maybe a misprint or not. But I won't argue over it. Not a big issue to me
            • Vince Pat, Sat Nov 11 6:28pm
              What you found was Fort Pierce in Wyoming County, Florida.
              • Re: Vince Vince Garcia, Sun Nov 12 2:06am
                The word "county" wasn't there. "Joe Smith from Fort Pierce, Wy, returned home today..." That's how it was written. But I'm done with this
                • Re: Vince Vince Garcia, Sun Nov 12 2:23am
                  That's a paraphrase, not precise wording, but it makes the point of how it was written, No word or anything that would imply Florida. Not my job to explain why if you're right
                  • Re: Vince Daniel Buck, Sun Nov 12 7:51am
                    Vince, The unnamed detective said that he encountered Logan "near the 'Hole' country, at a place called Pierce." Given that this is a "just so," story, we probably need to get too caught up in... more
