Announcing the passing of Robert G. McCubbin, a supporter of Jesse James Soul Liberty, and collector of Jesse James imagery.Its with great sadness that I share the news that legendary Robert G. McCubbin passed away this morning.
He was well known and respected in the American West history community, especially among Billy the Kid historians and enthusiasts. Mr. McCubbin was most well-known for his historic photographs, documents, books and artifacts, many pertaining to Billy the Kid and the Lincoln County War.
McCubbin was also publisher of “True West Magazine,” and a founder of the Wild West History Association.
Aside from his incredible collection, wealth of history knowledge, he was also a wonderful and funny guy. I'm so blessed to have met and spent two days hanging out with him in Lincoln back in 2014.
Gail McGreevy Harmon is a 2nd great-granddaughter of Thomas Martin "T.M." James. As a lawyer, Gail serves on the Board of Trustees of St. Mary's College of Maryland. Mindful of the financial hardships produced by the pandemic, the trustees are refunding students' room and board fees.
Sad to read of this news. I only learned about Joan Olmsted Oates after Jesse James Soul Liberty was published. The story of her parents appears in the chapter "Underrated Men & Unleashed Feminists" pp 201-205. Joan is a granddaughter of Vassie James, and 2nd great-granddaughter of Thomas Martin "T.M." James. I never got to meet or interview Joan, but I have a research file on her. Watch Stray Leaves as this lioness of the arts in education and her biography will appear. www.richmond.com/obituaries/oates-joan/article_fd9479f1-e6a8-591a-be9f-8a43c970cb74.html?fbclid=I......
