The Wilcox aftermath is an interesting period. SD does go off the radar somewhat until 1900 that we know of him and where he is for sure.

Was HE really the guy driving the horses w/Logan? We assume he was, but could witnesses be mistaken?

Could he have gone to NM and wound up w/the WS in this period? We do know that 2 sources place him in NM by the end of 1899.

I can't assume French was grossly misrepresenting the names. I have to start w/Lay (MacGinnis). The tale that he arrived to tell French that SOMEONE went to SA w/Jim Lowe sounds plausible. Then French claims Lay said it was TC. How could Lay be so mistaken? On what basis could Lay have thought BC would leave the country w/the "real" TC rather than SD? There could be SOME way, but not a seamless one it seems to me.

Then we add to the French's relating about whom he saw in the FW5 photo 'a year later' . Clearly, this is the FW5 photo right in the right timeframe. Again, the name TC comes up along with "Butch Cassidy,' and Jim Lowe. Why does the TC name arise a second time in relation to the same claim about BC going to SA w/a man by that name? I have no seamless explanation to substitute for the logical conclusion both men are IDing SD as TC. So there's too much here to simply ignore and try to pass off. I have to go w/what French says until I have something solid to explain it. There may indeed be questions left, but I don't see good answers to explain/refute his recollection HERE with this specific recollection otherwise

    The timeline for Sundance does not work out either for him being Tom Capehart. The Wilcox robbery, in which Sundace participated happened June 8 1899, The Folsom robbery, just over a month later on... more

        Vince after re-reading your comments, and looking into what French wrote, some observations and questions arise for you to consider. First of all, it was Lay that told French that Lowe had gone to... more

          "it was Lay that told French that Lowe had gone to South America, not the other way around, and that it was TC who went, with him" yes. That was what I have been saying, right? Lay visited him and... more
