    Im from Adairsville Georgia and Charles childhood home is in my neighborhood. Its a nice smaller home but for some reason its stayed empty for the last 20 years. I wish the owner trying to sale it hadn’t put vinyl siding on it . It takes away from the charm of the little house.

    I’m actually related to Pretty Boy Floyd he was a hero to many in the depression saving their homes if only history depicted the man he truly was.

    My Grandfather who at the time of the of Floyd’s funeral lived in Westville ,Oklahoma. He and my Father a boy of 7 made the trip from Westville to Akins, on Oklahoma Hwy 59 to attend the funeral.While there at some time before, during, or after the service my Grandfather picked up a flat stone roughly 3″X 3″ from the grave- site and carved the date of the funeral and Akins, Ok. on the stone. As far back as I can remember that stone was in his roll top desk. I am writing this on that roll top desk looking at that stone in a glass case advertising JP Priwley’s California Fruit and Pepsin Chewing Gum which came from his Father’s store in Rocky Comfort,Mo.I am 66 years old.That stone has been around a long time.

    I am also related to Pretty Boy Floyd. He is my second cousin as he was my dads first cousin. They were all from the north Florida/South Georgia area. He actually was very much like Robin Hood as he did help many poor, needy people pay their mortgages and/or buy groceries and clothes.

    This young man is my 7th cousin, 4 times removed. My aunt always said we have a lot of in-laws and just as many outlaws. Since working on my family tree I found Pretty boy and Butch Cassidy as family. Now all the stories I heard growing up make sense. LOL.

    Okay, I get it…there is some good in all of us, but Floyd was a cold blooded killer. The depression turned many a man bad and 1934 seemed to be the end for the worst of them: Dillinger, Nelson, Floyd, Bonnie and Clyde…they died as they lived. Sadly, they took a lot of innocent people with them. The media made them all out to be Robin Hoods but mostly, they were just hoods. They all lived fast and died young, most didn’t even make it to their thirties. And yet, we speak of the still. Maybe that’s all they ever wanted from life.

      I am so sorry for the negative only stories that have survived. My aunt Florence, aka mother (long story) used his name as a whipping post when I married my first love Floyd Johns, Jr. It turns out she was the witch-bitch and would maline any thing and any one do to jealousy and inferiority complex…my apologies to all.

    My grandfather, Harry Urval Majors, was arrested in Massillon, Ohio as they thought he was Pretty Boy Floyd in the 1930’s. He and my grandmother were shopping in downtown Massillon at the time. They lived in Canton, which neighbors Massillon. Apparently, Pretty Boy Floyd has just robbed a bank when he was arrested. They actually took him in and arrested him. With my grandmother’s help, he was cleared. I have many photos of my grandfather, and the resemblance is amazing.

    He was a hero… He helped people when no-one else gave a shit. He was just surviving and doing what anyone in the depression had to do. I don’t blame him for his actions. Who gonna sit around and watch their families starve??? Put yourself and family in this situation and what would you Do? I would’ve did the same thing to feed my family. He didn’t kill for fun, drastic measures make anyone do anything. Pretty boy Floyd was a real man and hero

    • Scott Kelley

      Floyd was a thief and a murderer. He was not “a real man and a hero”. He was a cowardly, murdering scum who brought pain to many people. Most people in the Depression found what work they could and got by. They did not steal from others and commit murder despite hard times. Please read my comment posted today.

    Pretty Boy Floyd was a thief and a murderer. Most of the banks he robbed were prior to the enactment of the FDIC. That means there was no insurance for anyone and the money he stole came from the pockets of the depositors. There is no evidence at all that he ever destroyed mortgages or shared what he stole with people–that’s just myth. Finally, he murdered many people, including my grandfather. That left my grandmother to raise five children on her own in the Great Depression.

    My mom told me Pretty Boy Floyd use to hide out in the hills of Fort Gibson Oklahoma and sneak down the hill to my grandmother back yard to draw water from her well.
