I have been doing genealogy for 30 years. My Great Aunt Ella introduced me to this fascinating adventure when I was a teenager and boy did I get hooked. She inspired me and taught me the importance of my roots and where I came from.

The Daniels' Clairvoyant Way of Grand Larceny

William Daniels was born in 1884 in Pennsylvania and his beautiful wife Georgia was born in 1885 in Georgia. They were the best scammers of their time, using her clairvoyance to entice their victims out of their money.  In 1912 they convinced an elderly lady that the inheritance she received was curse.

Georgia said to the Widow Mrs. Anna Neill "That money is cursed if not removed it will bring you bad luck."

Georgia put the money in a pouch and sewed it shut and said a few magic words to removed the curse and told Mrs Neill not to open the pouch for 2 weeks or the curse would not be broken. 

Mrs Neil had gone shopping and wanted to by a watch and found she didn't have enough change so she opened the pouch to removed a few bills and found it contained only paper.  She went to the police crying and explaining what had happened and the Daniels were arrested before they could leave town. They were both held in the Tulare County Jail.






William Daniels had been in the Stillwater Prison in Minnesota at some point before this charge.
He was received into San Quentin on 19 Jul 1912 as Inmate #25873 for a 4 year sentence being discharged on 19 Jul 1915.
