Who knew Charlie Pitts intended to marry Jesse James’ sister, Susan Lavenia James? The answer was found in the Zee James Collection.
“August 10, 1876, My Darling Suz. I have pondered long for the love if your embrace. I am taken with the thoughts of our union. I told of Maw Pitts of our plans and she is beside herself. Worry not for I will come for you soon. Charley.”
This was just one of the revelations arising in a hand written note from the discovery of the Zee James Collection in Stamping Ground, Kentucky.
