Famous Residents - Page 2

post #31 of 46
My husband grew up in the town where John Wayne Gacey committed his murders (Norridge, IL). He lured his victims by offering them construction jobs for decent money. While my husband (about 16 years old) was working in a convenience store where Gacey used to shop, Gacey asked him if he wanted to start making real money. I am very grateful that Steve politely declined.

Scary, eh?

Trisha Yearwood is about the most well known one. She still comes home all of the time (her parents are still here). She has even brought Garth with her. I've met her and she's a really nice person (and tall - taking after her father). Unfortunately, I haven't met Garth. Wouldn't that be nice?

Willow's Mom--actually nobody really knows where Buffalo Bill is truly buried. As a resident of both Colorado and Wyoming I was confused as heck when we'd go to Buffalo Bill's grave just up I-70 outside of Golden (I grew up in Golden) and then we'd go to Buffalo Bill's grave up in Cody, Wyoming. Both states claim him and nobody knows for sure who has him.

Ahhh Didn't know that I have only been to the one up I 70 once and that was when I was about 7 years old with my Grandparents. Thanks for tellin me

Just a weird trivia fact. Sacajawea has some of the same issues around her death. There are two legends. One is that she died on the trail in S. Dakota, the other is that she lived and settled on the Wind River Indian Reservation and died there. I've been to the gravesite in WY as a child and seen the other theory on TV. I like to think she lived on the Indian Reservation since I spent my childhood summers there, but no one is sure on that one either.

Sydney Pollack the director, Charles Lamb of CSPAN. Alva Roebuck from Sears and Roebuck (so hubby says). That's all I can think of.

Evansville claims Bob Griese and Don Mattingly (sports), Ron Glass (actor on Barney Miller), Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor - Smallville) grew up about a mile from me (I know his Mom and saw him at her recent wedding. Didn't meet him, he was too busy avoiding pushy women).

Dulles (as in Dulles airport) was from here as well. I know there are others, but can't think of them now.

Oh, Abraham Lincoln was born in Kentucky and at age 7 moved to the county east of me and lived there until about 21 years old. He would come to Boonville Indiana to borrow law books from a lawyer there. it is possible that some of my ancestors may have known him or his family. I have come across some records which i still have to research more.
