    east Arkansas late 1890s (about the time True Grit was set). my great-grandmother is in the middle. my grandfather is second from the left - the kid in the bow tie. I drag this out every time I get an earful of how our family only got to where it is today on the backs of other people and didn't "earn it".

    My mother's side of the family is from a tiny town in Calabria, in the province of Cosenza, called San Lucido. My father's family is also from the province of Cosenza, but they are from the city of Cosenza.

    My parents have a home in San Lucido, right on the water. :up:

    Oklahoma and Texas.

    There's a branch of my family on my father's side named "Guess," which was a made up name that came from a blaek guy that killed a white guy in the 1880s in a card game in Texas and had to go on the run.

    Another branch came from some drunk Irishman who sold guns and booze to the Indians in Oklahoma Territory.

    My great uncle used to hang out with Pretty Boy Floyd's gang in Oklahoma (they had a hideout near my other great uncle's - his brother's - farm). He never did any jobs with PBF - allegedly - but was known as a good "wheel man." PBF stole his car and used it in a bank robbery in Kansas.

    A sterling family history is what I've got...
