From Belvidere.  38 years old - changed the subject like a bolt of lightning: like from "pass the gravy" to "pass the salt and pepper." Moved to Belvidere from Indianapolis, Ohio, then to New York, Ky., then to Los Angeles, Mich., and then to Cleveland, Minn. - married a woman 37 years old, went into the granulated shoestring business, ran away with his brother's wife, automobile, furniture and clothing by mistake, shot a barber for giving him too close a haircut in the elbow and later died. - compiled by Richard E.
