Michael O'Laughlen death

(1/3) > >>

Does anyone out there know of any documentation which proves Michael O'Laughlen's death?  I have searched and can't find any. [Traditional historians hold that he died in the Dry Tortugas of Yellow Fever in September, 1867, but I find that the only source for this is two letters from Samuel Mudd to his wife, Frank].  Any help would be appreciated.

O'Laughlen's death is recorded in the Fort Jefferson Post Return for September 1867 - see lower right hand corner of report.

Steven G. Miller:
There some folks who believe that Mike O' survived and spent his last years over in Muscatine, IA.


As I once said, "It's hard to kill a good villain."

I am hoping Randal will meet me inside Wildcat Den State Park to start searching for O'Laughlen's remains. I have a bad back, and I need a youngster like Randal to do the digging. I will not only pay for the shovel but also explain to the park rangers what you're doing. 417 acres shouldn't take too long.

Admit it Roger, you only want me there to guard you from the creepy crawly things that live there!

I made this generous offer almost 1 1/2 years ago, Randal, and it still stands.

My statement still stands also :D
