Black Sheep Sunday: Alonzo Brant inflicts a "badly damaged face"


"...thereupon, according to the complainant, Brant proceeded to beat his [the complainant's] face."  The aforementioned Brant being Alonzo Mason Brant, my husband's great-granduncle; the year, 1910; the place, Nebraska.  You never know what you're going to find when you start digging around in old newspapers!

  1. How right you are. I found a connection to my grandmother and a Bigfoot hoax in Northern CA in an old newspaper. Always fun to read the old papers. Great Blog.
