I heard a song years ago about one of the last old-time train robberies, in the 1920s. The song was on a record that I loaned and lost. It was a simple song that told the story of this last robbery.
I looked for some information in the Postal Inspectors site and found this:
1926--Postal Inspectors successfully concluded a 3-1/2 year, worldwide manhunt for three train bandits known as the D'Autremont brothers. The brothers killed four men and blew up a mail car which they thought was carrying half a million dollars in gold.
I liked the song but I never felt connected to it until I read a little squib in the paper twenty or twenty five years ago that the last surviving brother had been released from prison and was teaching in a Sunday school in Washington State.
Does anyone know "the rest of the story" or where the song might be located?
