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.

Franklin Everett: A Career Criminal Who Lost His Mom

Franklin Everett was born 20 May 1894 in Redwood Falls, MN, to Charles Walker Everett (1841-1916) and Charlotte Bowman (1843-1989).

Franklin was a "career criminal". He was born in MN, but his mother died when he was 4 years old. He was raised for awhile by his sister, Marion Everett Atkinson, but was later removed from her home by their father. He then began his life of crime, mostly robberies. He was the leader of the "Dinner Gang", a group of criminals who robbed people when they were out for the evening. His sister Marion tried for years to get him straightened out, but to no avail. She died in 1921, and he went downhill after that. Prisoner number 19760. He died of TB in prison.
