Joyce wrote: "and Frank immediately turned and staggered toward her or her general direction."
I don't recall this anywhere in the testimony.

Joyce wrote: "Frank was gut-shot at the outset"
By "outset" are you referring to the first two shots or after he is out in the street?

Joyce wrote: "I'd still like to know how Addie never mentioned Frank in the street..."
Addie said she went to the back of the building after the shooting starts. When shooting breaks out people have a tendency to move rather quickly. She was gone before having time to see much except for the first two shots. So she claims. I have no reason not to believer her, and sounds reasonable enough to me.

          Interesting take on it. I like Addie. Took some guts for a single gal to live where she did. Best wishes, Jones

              Joyce, sorry to jump in here, but there are certain things you never forget. About 12 or 14 years ago, there was a mention of William Bourland being a member of the coroner's jury for the murder of Morgan... more

                  Joyce, this kind of reminds me of the confusion between Billy Allens. For years we read that Doc Holliday encountered the Billy Allen that witnessed the shootout when he ended up in Leadville, Colorado.... more
