Pretty Boy Floyd Handgun; Paul Cuffee Muster Roll; Pop Lloyd Baseball Field
Questions involve "Pretty Boy" Floyd, Negro League baseball great John Henry "Pop" Lloyd and a Revolutionary War muster roll. A California man owns a handgun that was given to him by his uncle, who said that Floyd had given it to him in Missouri in 1934 for acting as lookout for the notorious bank robber. As for Lloyd, why was a baseball stadium in Atlantic City that opened in 1949 named after him? And the muster, from Falmouth, Mass., in 1780, lists Paul Cuffee as one of its soldiers. Is it authentic? And is the Paul Cuffee listed the man who was a noted black businessman and patriot?
