The Redfields were implicated in various crimes for years. Vaughn's vouching for their reputation doesn't exactly lend a lot of credibility to his other character reference for the McLaurys, of whom the speaks highly.
Sharon, go to the search engine at the bottom of this page and type in "Redfield" and you'll come up with a lot of info on the criminal brotherhood, some of it fairly new.
Thanks so much for the info, Bob. I haven't been researching/writing about the Old/Wild West in a while, but still interested in whatever others learn. This Vaughan/Redfield, etc. stuff is new to me. Thanks... more
