Butch In His Own Backyard

UK researcher Mike Bell discovered Butch Cassidy's roots close to home.

After travelling the Americas on the trail of the leader of the Hole In The Wall Gang, he was astonished to learn that Cassidy’s mother was born in Brandling Village, Jesmond, Newcastle.

Mike said: “When I found out that Butch Cassidy’s mum was a Geordie, I was gobsmacked.

“I have travelled from Utah to Argentina, looking for information about him.

“All the time the house where his mother once lived was around the corner.” [Link]

I have posted the same story on my blog just 3 minutes before you! Does it means that we were writing that post at the same time?
