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.

I do not know why he was in Preston Reform School, but I did find this wanted card.











He had no other criminal convictions I could find, he may have got smart and used an alias.
