About Me

My photo
I'm 65 years old and have lived in the Akron-Tallmadge, Ohio area all of my life. For 10-years (1957-1967) I lived most summers at our home in Cook Forest, Pa. I'm a U.S. Army veteran (1971-1973). I collect many things such as: antique cars, antique firearms, movies, movie props, old newspapers and posters, Wyatt Earp items, Civil War items, John Wayne items, items from the old west including Native American items, just about anything historical. I've been married for 42-years. My wife and I have a son and a daughter and four granddaughters.

Brothers Jesse and Frank James terrorized banks, trains and payrolls in the 1870s and '80s. They have been credited with the first day time bank robbery in American history. The Pinkerton Detective Agency had a run for it's money chasing the James boys from state to state.
Among the James Gang were the Younger Brothers. Other gang members came and gone. Below you will find photos of the James' and the Youngers plus the women in their lives and some of their victims. I call this, "The James Family Album".
