Black Sheep Sunday: William D. Gatlin Robs His Own Family

Nashville Tennesseean and Nashville American, 22 September 1912

After my great-grandfather' brother William D. Gatlin escaped from jail in Bloomington, Indiana, he went to Nashville, Tennessee. He broken into the home of Walter J. Hughes and stole jewelry and $5. Although the above clipping states that W. J. Hughes was his cousin, he was actually William's uncle by marriage. Walter J. Hughes married Mary "Mollie" Dyer (William's mother's sister) on 11 February 1882.
