Let's start with his. First we have a gentleman who was a Miller, see definition below photo.
|Millers are responsible for the processing of different types of grain, particularly wheat and maize.|
Wellington Frederick was Born 25 Feb 1828 in Canada most likely Ontario. He moved to Willow Creek, Gallatin, MT and on 18 of Sep 1879, Mr. Michael Foley watched as Mr Frederick went to the barn to milk the cows, and entered the house and pulled a gun on Mrs. Frederick said he was going to killer her but first wanted all the money in the house. A young boy ran out to the barn to get Wellington and when he entered the house Mr Foley shot him in the side. They had a altercation and Mr. Foley received a gash on his head. Mr Frederick told his wife to save herself because he knew he was done in. Mr. Foley escaped.
I attached the newspaper articles so you can read the whole story.
Some pretty interesting reading, I wonder if that sheriff was re-elected? Hope not. Mr. Foley had made several threats to other towns people.
Our next story starts in St. Louis, Missouri in 1935 with a 17 year old who either couldn't stay out of trouble or the local police had it out for him. He was arrested 33 times with no convictions.
Ross Henderson was born on 7 Oct 1917 to John E Henderson and his wife Hazel B McKague.

|Ross Henderson Death Certificate|
After burying his son on the 9th of March 1937 His daughter Sylvia was struck and killed by a passenger train.
John E Henderson died 24 Dec 1958 in St Louis, O at the age of 71.
I could not find any further information on the remaining children, Russell, Velma & Delores. Below is Sylvia's, John's and Hazel's death certificates.
I am hoping that John and the rest of his children saw better days and that he grew old with grandchildren bouncing on his knee and listening to him tell the stories of when he was young.
John did re-marry to a nurse named Clara Marie Dorack, I do not know the date they Married but she died 16 Apr 1965 and they are buried together at Saint Peter Cemetery Kirkwood, St. Louis County, Missouri, USA
I will continue to look for them and hopefully one day I will add a happy ending to this sad tale.
Rest in peace, you are not for gotten.
