Lead Photograph Attributed to Jesse James & Bob Ford
Tin type photograph. Identified by leading forensic artist Lois Gibson as Jesse James & Bob Ford, the man who shot & Killed Jesse James. This is the only known photo of the two men together. Inherited by Ms. Sandy Mills from her grandmother Isabelle Klemann,, who's, great grandmother was directly related to the James family according to genealogical research from author Freda Cruse Hardison. "Mills' great-great-grandmother, Pauline Roundtree, was indeed linked closely to Jesse James—she was the first cousin, once-removed, of Jesse's sister-in-law, Annie Ralston James (Frank James wife). For 19th Century towns of the Midwestern frontier, Hardison said, that's a tight connection, and means they plausibly lived nearby. "It's not hard for me to believe at all that Pauline Roundtree would have been a part of all of that extended family and extended community of the James brothers," said Hardison, who's been cited as an expert on the Travel Chanel's "America Declassified" and in Oxford American Magazine. Freda Cruse Hardison, 58, is a respected historian of the Ozark Region in Arkansas and Missouri. Hardison,holds a PhD from the University of California, Is preparing to publish her new historical novel: "Frank and Jesse James Friends and Family," which details the extended community of the famed outlaw brothers." -excerpt from Houston Chronicle article October 14, 2015 Lois Gibson is recorded in The Guinness Book of World Records as "The World's Most Successful Forensic Artist." Her sketches have helped law enforcement bring in over 1,300 criminals. She is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honors and the FBI Academy Forensic Artist Course. She now teaches this profession at Northwestern University and The Institute of Forensic Art in Houston, Texas.
