Soapy Smith's McGinty and the Solid Muldoon[edit]

Until the spring of 2009 when my book is published on my great grandfather, Jefferson Randolph "Soapy" Smith I will not make changes to this sites information regarding Soapy Smith having once owned the Solid Muldoon. He did not, however I do not wish to debate the erroneous content of the "sources" listed, one of which claims Denver newspapers state it is the Solid Muldoon. This is simply not true. I have researched the Denver newspaper articles on Soapy's petrified man, named McGinty, and there is no such reference to the Solid Muldoon. Somewhere down the line a writer "assumed" the two entities were one and the same and wrote about it. Now several people have copied the information.

Soapy Smith had his own creation made from a real corpse. He named it McGinty. Photographs taken in 1892-93 in Denver, Colorado clearly show it is not the Solid Muldoon. Once my book is published I will come back and correct the article. Jeff Smith (talk) 03:40, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
