Re: blackmore vs US Govt.
No doubt it was not successful. I was merely stating what was written in a letter over 75 years ago. There is discussion of this topic on blackmore forums. I merely posted here because genealogy.com bot suggested it (guess the new york in msg triggered). I am not familiar with the New York Sun from around the turn of the century. Anyway, there is a book at least at Carnegie Library in Philly detailing the suit and claim, "Blackmore Millions" by Clyde Everhart. Sorry to post a topic off base. It's stuff of family legends.
