Pretty Boy Floyd committed more than thirty bank robberies in the Midwest, mostly in Ohio and Oklahoma. When he robbed the banks, he would also destroy mortgage documents. On 9 April 1932, he shot and killed Erv Kelley, a bounty hunter and former sheriff of McIntosh County, Oklahoma. He and Adam Richetti were suspects in the Kansas City Massacre, a shootout which resulted in the death of four police officers and a prisoner. However, it is possible that he was not actually involved. He was named "Public Enemy No. 1" on 23 July 1934.
Charles Arthur Floyd married Ruby Hardgraves in 1924. The couple had a son, Charles Dempsey Floyd (also known as Jack Dempsey Floyd). Ruby and I are both descendants of Francis Hardgrave and Sarah Greer. We are fifth cousins twice removed.
