Getting back to the buggy, if I recall, Mrs Surratt sent Wiechmann to borrow Booth's buggy.  He told Wiechmann he had sold it, and gave him some money to rent one.  Anyone remember that?

At the same time Dixie Reckoning was released, another book (ony 62 pages) about the JFK assassination was released.  Same publication date, only available as an e-book, same publisher, RMS.  Coincidence?

Has anyone actually read the final published version of Dixie Reckoning?

Randall, do you still have Grace Henson White's email address?  I wonder what happened to the diary?  And I wonder what David Vancil at the Indiana State University library could tell us, now that Mr. Stelnick is no longer able to speak for himself?    

Someone, somewhere, should have Mr. Stelnick's research notes.

But Lloyd did have the shootin irons ready and they were called upon that night.   

Perhaps as Wiechmann is heading out the door to procure the buggy, he meets JWB on his second visit to Marry.  Maybe he forgot to tell her something the first time (check out the number of troops on the road and in the area, bring my brown wrapped package that is made of glass, if you have time make me some of your wonderful chocolate chip cookies (she didn't) and tell Lloyd to have them shootin irons ready.   Unfortunately for Booth, he forgot to ask her where the bad potholes in the road were.

Re-read Weichman's testimony from above. Mary, not JWB, gave Weichman the money to rent the buggy.

Oops, my mistake.  Thanks for correcting me.

Booth's timing in giving Wiechmann the $ to rent the buggy for Mary is certainly a generous gesture and amazing coincidence then.

So is Booth's "friendly visit" to the Surrattt boarding house the day of the assassination.  Especially if John was out of town.  Booth seemed to be on much friendlier terms with Mary than he was with the young Anna.  That doesn't help support Mary's innocence.

But I'm just speculating too    Smiley

I wouldn't count on Ford's testimony too much,  He was a good friend of JWB, the feds took his theater away from him, and he was in Richmond the day of the assassination.  He's not going to do much to aid the prosecution.   He appears to have strong southern sympathies with theaters in Baltimore & Richmond
Besides, how would Ford know when Mary Surratt talked with Wiechmann?  

Remember, Wiechmann talked to War Dept officials before the assassination that something odd was going on and they didn't follow up.  The defense tried to discredit Wiechmann's testimony and the best they could do was catch a mistake on the date when Mudd pretends to introduce John Surratt to Booth.  Nothing else.  I don't know of anyone who has been able to prove he or Lloyd lied.  Mary tripped herself up when Paine was arrested at her house.

Please explain Booth's purpose in visiting the Surratt boarding house so much on the day of the assassination, if Mary is innocent?  And what testimony of Wiechmann's at Johnny's trial are you referring to?

Randal, or any one else, can you tell us more about this book and it's author, Mitchell Hunt?

Joe, I appreciate the fact that you give credit to others for assisting you in your research.  To many people fail to do this.

The one problem I have with Davey shooting the horses in the swamp, he has to lead the horse into the deep watery muck and then shoot it.  I'm not sure, but I think it will probably strongly resist that.   It's pretty hard to drag a dead hose into the swamp into muck deep enough where you can no longer see it.

Is Progressive Press the source of the announcement that Rick Stelnick had died?

Cliff said he contacted the hospital mentioned in their announcement and they have no record of him. Good job, Cliff!   Anyone ever had any contact with Progressive Press?   What do they have to say?  What's their source?    I don't know who on this forum knows him best, but why not file a missing person's report.

Do we have any NJ members that want to do a drive by of the addresses Cliff mentioned?

On the Amazon book site for Dixie Reckoning, the  publisher is shown as RMS.  I would guess it's self published.
RMS - Richard Mark Stelnick.    

Your thoughts?, I can't be the only one who watches too many crime shows on TV.

I was typing the same response Wesley.

That makes sense. That's where the Neff-Guttridge Collection is located.

Just curious, is your copy of the diary, an actual copy of the hand written pages, or is it a typed transcript a la Ray Neff?

Is Philip Henson any relation to Edwin Henson of the "Lincoln Conspiracy?"

This reminds me of a song (and I'm taking the title and lyrics out of context that they were written)

Please excuse my skepticism regarding all of this, I'm hoping many of you share similar sentiments

Interesting, he spends years on a controversial book and just as it gets published, (but only in ebook form, but you can't seem to purchase a copy of it from his publisher?) he mysteriously dies in FL, but there's no record of his death, there or in his home state?  Some of you guys are good at research, right?  Would not the death certificate be of public record?   Any one check with the hospital or the coroners office?  If he has died, no reason to hide it.  Some of you knew him.  If you can find out what happened to people over 100 years ago, surely you can find out what happened two months ago to someone you knew.

http://www.progressivepress.com/author/rick-stelnick

He has a colorful history, so if the past is any indication, if he's not dead, he won't be able to stay under the radar for long.

Wild Bill, would you please share with us the reasoning behind your last comment?

Thanks

Would he be that dressed up to perform an autopsy?  At least roll up his sleeves?
