RE: Billy the Kid page, Rumors of Survival paragraph
In 1948, a Central Texas man known as Ollie Partridge Roberts, who went by the nickname of “Brushy Bill”, began to claim he was Billy the Kid.
SHOULD BE: Oliver Pleasant Roberts (He signed his full name to his World War I Draft registration as Oliver Pleasant Roberts. His name in various census, marriage, and death records, and in Arkansas Warranty Deeds appears as Oliver, Oliver P., O. P., Ollie, and Ollie L. Roberts )
His full name appears in two books, “Billy the Kid, His Real Name Was”, Jim Johnson, p. 14, pp. 72-73; and “Billy the Kid…Just Another Billy the Kid Tall Tale?”, Roy Haws, pp. 127-129; and the official government document with his full name is his WWI Draft Registration where he registered as Oliver Pleasant Roberts.
No credible record has been found that shows Brushy Bill’s name was Ollie Partridge Roberts, although a Google search reveals the name appears in multiple documents. No source was cited.
I am a genealogist and researcher. I have not mastered the Wikipedia rules and regulations. My edit of Billy the Kid Wikipedia page was deleted for noncompliance. I would like to contribute more detailed information to the Brushy Bill Roberts page at a later date IF I can send my research to a knowledgeable volunteer for proper formatting.
