Christine N. Brûlé-Brousseau I'm a Métis from Ontario, Canada with roots in both the United States and Canada. As a child, one of my first cousin's persistently requested that we play "Cowboys and Indians"... My interest and curiosity in the Wild, Wild West stemmed from there and continued to grow over the years. I have numerous ancestors in my family tree who were outlaws and lawmen from the Wild, Wild West. Some include: Jesse James; Doc Holliday; Wyatt Earp, Virgil Earp and Morgan Earp; Judge Charles Alexis Hypolite Trottier Beaubien of New Mexico; Henry "Billy the Kid" Bonney's (McCarty) II longtime girlfriend, Paulita Jaramillo (Maxwell); Thomas "Tom" Horn Jr.; Sheriff Pat Garrett; Frank Dalton, Deputy U S. Marshall; Gratton Hanley "Grat" Dalton, leader of the Dalton Gang; William "Bill" Marion Dalton, co-leader of the Wild Bunch; Robert Renick "Bob" Dalton, part of the Dalton Gang; Emmett "Em" Dalton, Dalton Gang Judge Isaac Parker, the "Hanging Judge"; Chalkley "Chalk" Beeson, Sheriff of Dodge City and founder/leader of the Dodge City Cowboy Band; William Bartholomew Masterson, U.S. Marshall; James Masterson: Edward J. Masteterson; Martha Jane Burke (Canary) aka Calamity Jane; "Queen" Ann Bassett and her sister, Josie Bassett - both associates of Butch Cassidy's Wild Bunch gang; and others. I'm especially interested in the ladies of the Wild, Wild West.
Christopher Douglas I have several ancestors who were involved in the Wild, Wild, West. Several were Mormons, who went to Utah, including one who was involved with the Golden Spike ceremony, and another who was a soldier in the Mormon Battalion. A couple were soldiers who were involved in operations in the West, in the Mexican American War and mostly before and during the Civil War, and at least one who was directly involved in fighting the Natives after the War. There were also a couple involved in the Gold Rush. One was a ancestor who moved to Kansas between 1870 and 1875, and finally there was one outlaw in the family that I know of.
Michelle Enke I am interested in the Wild Wild West Project and would like to add profiles from the Wichita, Kansas, area. I have experience with genealogical and historical research of the Great Plains, and am willing to help.
Casey Gilliam I have several outlaws in my family tree - Jesse James, Doc Holliday, the Earps, etc. My degree is in American history that I teach and it's been a special niche obsession of mine since I was a teenager and visited Virginia City. I love all aspects, so I'd love to jump in and help where I can.
Sondra Marshall I am interested in Nebraska and all States located to the west, north and south of Nebraska. I work mainly with old frontier post cemetery burials that were moved to Ft. McPherson National Cemetery which includes a few civilians. Biggest project to date is Moses Embree "California Joe" MIlner, miner, trapper and scout for the US Army among other things.
Casimer Russak Guess you might want to consider me a bonafide part-native scout who is rememberin' his family and any others. You want authentic Old West? You got it!
Scott Lee Just hooked on WikiTree, for years now since 2012 (my original account). I just like research and history and come across a lot of interesting characters. Trying to focus on the ultimate goal of connecting the family but enjoy building profile bios and sources. Good to be part of the adventure!
