I have never given up on Minnie Brown. In 1911 she did make a trip to MT as her brother Miller had been arrested and put in prison there.Miller and Minnie were in Buffalo ,WY in 1900.Miller had jumped bail from Lander as an accomplice in the murder with Holliday of Sayles 1899. Never heard of her trips to Globe ,AZ although that's where William T Phillips was also at that time.

She could have gotten the watches from Elzy who lived in Shoshoni until 1920. Elzy had a lot of jewelry and watches from train robberies.

As to Virginia Hahn that is a different story. Minnie talked Virginia into coming up to Thermop from Okla because Virginia had a lawsuit against the Gov on behalf of her father Jim Bridger. Minnie hoped to cash in. When Virginia settled with the Gov then Minnie went through the money and left Virginia to die within the year from neglect. Minnie was a grifter.

Bob and I had tried to find out how Minnie got to Cuba by 1904 and could not come into the US so had to get Mike Brown to come down for her. They then went to St Louis for WF. That may be who sent the WF card to Longabaughs.Let's also not forget Minnie was married to Stephens who went with Grice to Chubut and together did the Rio Gallegos robbery. I have a whole lot more .

Can't wait to see the letter to and from RR on the watches.
