What an awesome find: One wonders who the other folk in the photo are, Pat Garret and his posse or Billy the Kid and his crew

How lucky are you to have Billy the Kid as a relative.

Cheryl, You must be kidding! They were killers.
Everyone has to be related to someone.  We have to take our good relatives with the bad. And I have to tell you, that I have a couple of relatives that have never killed anyone, but the things that they say about their own blood, and the way they hurt their families has to be worse than having a killer in your family.

Just my opinion.

God Bless!
