Clyde C. Barrow/Barron (of Bonnie & Clyde fame) also had a Blevins, Falls Co., Texas connection:

According to a great genealogist (who wishes to remain anonymous) Clyde C. Barrow also had a Blevins, Texas connection. According to her his grandmother was Mahala Ann Barron. The reader may recall that my paternal great-great-grandfather was Thomas Hudson Barron of Blevins, Texas.

Laura Anderson Way did the following family tree for me but another genealogist previously made all the connections referred to in this post – their respective research confirms the other’s findings:

Mahala Barron was married to William Wilson Walker and their daughter, Cumi Walker, was the mother of Clyde Chesnut Barrow. Mahala Ann Barron is the daughter of Samuel B Barron and Phoebe Barber. Samuel B. Barron was born in 1808 in Georgia and Thomas Hudson Barron was born 1796 in Kentucky. Thomas Hudson Barron family can be found in Charles County, Maryland and tie into the Lindsey family. Mahala Barron has family ties to the Lindsey family and many of the family names associated with those of Thomas Hudson Barron.

History of Barron Family: John Barron came from Ireland. In this family were Thomas & Teresa. John Barron lived near Elizabeth Town, KY and married Sarah Tweedell of VA. John Barron was a farmer. In this union were Joseph, Benjamin, Matthew, Martha, Mary, Harrison, Jinken Rogers, Thomas, Susan, David & Miles. They moved from KY to Sangamon Co., IL, later moving to Astoria, Fulton Co., IL. and Falls County, Texas:

Jesse James’ Lindsay/Lindsey family (his maternal grandmother was a Lindsay/Lindsey) as well as the Barron’s Lindsay/Lindsey family were in Charles Co., Maryland at the same time [which points to the fact that they were the same family]. The James and Barron (also known as Barns and Barrow, Barber / Barbee, Wilson/ Walker) families connect to one another.

New Book: Jesse James – The Smoking Gun

The Book

Jesse James - The Smoking Gun

Just when you thought DNA testing had dispelled the age-old rumor that Jesse James lived up to his legend by getting away with his own 1882 murder comes a fresh, new book proving otherwise – Jesse James – The Smoking Gun (978-0615563794, paperback, 344 pages, 6 X 9, $19.00).
Everything you will read in this book will surprise you and the photographic evidence will convince you. Utilizing modern facial recognition techniques and current research Betty Dorsett Duke focuses on recently discovered photographic evidence that did what neither fraudulent 1995 DNA testing nor the famed Pinkerton Detective Agency were able to do – capture Jesse James. The author makes a carefully crafted case that the legendary Jesse James didn’t die by the hand of Bob Ford by painstakingly removing lore and legend and replacing it with scientific facts and hard evidence. Everyone wants the handsome outlaw hero to win in the end, and this book proves Jesse James did just that and died the gentleman farmer in Texas.
What makes this book different is that the author, Jesse James’ great-granddaughter, approaches the story from an insider’s point of view showing her family story and old family photographs coincide with the historically accepted version of the famous outlaw’s life through the Civil War. During the author’s seventeen year quest to determine her true lineage she has published two other books on this controversial subject, Jesse James Lived & Died In Texas (1998) and The Truth About Jesse James (2007). These books are taken so seriously by the “Jesse James powers that be” that they threatened her life, as well as the lives of her family, to protect their vested interests.
