A Knife for Ed ?
Sun Sep 8, 2019 09:40

Hi everyone, in Gary Rooberts book about Doc. He has found nothing to confirm the Ed bailey story . Only to say Wyatt mentioned it more then once and easily got names and dates wrong. so could of happened somewhere else. I did ask victoria Wilcox about this and she thinks it was a made up story from a newspaper man. But i never got a answer about the claim Gary Roberts made about wyatt mentioning it more then once . So my question really is - If the san Francisco newspaper article was indeed fabricated about Doc and bailey . where was it mentioned by Wyatt again ? Or was this just the same story rehashed ? Any ideas ?

      Gary, Stuart Lake repeats the 1896 story in Frontier Marshal, but not as a direct quote from Wyatt. Maybe there is something in the Lake notes that shows Wyatt repeating the story, or maybe Lake was... more

        Wyatt refers to episode involving Ed Bailey in the 1896 EXAMINER article (and Lake expanded it in FRONTIER MARSHAL). The incident is also mentioned cryptically in the Lake Notes at the Huntington.... more

            Gary, The day I received the first copies of the DOC bio, I also received a document from Bob Cash that I knew nothing about. Doc had signed a petition along with a number of other people regarding... more
