I've been working on Pierre Wibaux, his bank and most recently Judge Strevell and his son.
I'm hoping Amorette et al will peruse them and offer corrections/additions. Hal is winging his way to Hawaii, so he'll have to chime in later.
Any pics of Charles Nettleton Strevell?
Who was his bio father?
Exact birth date?
Best guess is that his mom never married his dad, or his dad was not the Z. N. Nettleton was also a Pontiac town founder with J. W. Strevell.
Anyone know what Helen Strevell died of?
Can anyone confirm that she died exactly 15 years to the day before her mom did?
How much was papa Strevell involved in "Miles & Strevell" hardware store?
Charley branched the store into Utah, but Jason had operated a hardware store almost the entire time he was in Pontiac. I'm guessing that papa was the money partner, Charles the operational partner.
Was Jason ever really a judge? I've seen no evidence yet. In fact, Geo. Miles was not a lawyer (AFAIK), but *he* is referred to as a Federal judge in at least 2 sources, I think.
I wonder how much of Jason Strevell's wealth was from livestock operations? I know those operations were 100 miles from MC. Anyone know which direction?
Any kids other than Helen and Charles?
