Lou, you forwarded the following ino about Oscar Lee Boland.Please note that it mentions Eastland County, Texas.I checked RootsWeb and will post that info below, but it turns out that Oscar Lee Boland lived in Bell or Commanche County, Texas and his mother died in Eastland County, TX.Bell County adjoins Falls County and my great-grandfather lived right on the line separating Bell and Falls County.

This comes from the book "Jesse James was One of His Names."
Eastland County, Tex., July 1, 1960, by Oscar Lee Boland: "I knew both Jesse W. James and "Bloody Bill" Anderson. Not everybody knew who Jesse was, but my family did, and we kept our mouths shut."
I'm checking to see when Oscar Lee Boland was born.
Lou, Oscar Boland's mother was a Gibbs.A Marion Gibbs helped compile Families of Falls County.I bet she was connected to Oscar's mother.Marion Gibbs was absolutely fascinated by my great-grandfather.
