Another Bonnie and Clyde Story

 

Again, the sheriff's name was Henderson Jordan, my second cousin.   Bonnie and Clyde were taken down about six miles

Another Bonnie and Clyde Story That is correct, Hamilton Jordan.I included the Jordan name below the bold print just to egg on some contributors.Rodney can vouch for the story that the Jordan family had great concern for many decades that gang members just might return to Arcadia. Tom Carey The sheriff was my second cousin...

Henderson Jordan Nolanh Bailey, Class of 1957

Did I tell you that a man came into my office last week who is married to the Granddaughter of the sheriff who set up the Bonnie & Clyde ambush?  You may recall the sheriff’s name.   After the ambush the men present divided up the weapons. Sheriff kept a shotgun.

Seems like a brother of this man’s wife saw a piece on PBS about valuable weapons and contacted the appraiser. That man told  Mr. Jordan that IF this were really involved, it is extremely valuable.  Seems like the gentleman knows this well, he is a banker.  Stay tuned. I used to see patients from Arcadia and I would frequently ask the older ones “were you there when they brought the bodies in”?   Few if any of those exist today. I saw the last one who was there about 3 years ago. Perhaps some of you still see those present on May 23, 1934 at Conger’s Funeral Home? It is quite possible as some children there, maybe age 9, would be only 85. tdCarey

MOUNTAINSIDE, N.J. (AP) - The gun is a triumph of American craftsmanship from the early 20th century, its sleek barrel familiar to anyone raised on the movies of Bogart and Cagney, "Scarface" and "Little Caesar."
