I don't recall hearing of Payne in Montreal.

Untitled, JOURNAL (Syracuse, NY), January 4, 1867, “The room occupied by Payne, the assassin, at the Merchants’ Hotel, Montreal is preserved in exactly the same condition that it was in when Payne occupied it, and is shown to the curious by the landlord.”

Gene, that falls into what Sherlock Holmes called, "The curious incident of the dog in the night." (The dog didn't do anything in the night . . . that's why it was so curious a thing.)

Betty O., have you ever heard of Powell visiting Montreal? Or, was this just a case of a businessman making a few bucks off a gullible public?
