ROCKY BAR MURDERS

submitted by Ray & Carla McDonald

 We have acquired a real photograph,  (not a post card) of an event that seemed to have happened in Rocky Bar. It shows a man and a woman, outside a log house with a small stoop, and both are obviously dead.  On the back of the photograph, in handwriting, is: " Lillian May Riley, Charlie Moreno, Half-Breed. Killed at Rocky Bar at house known as Cornish Lou. In 10 years before David Steele killed Richard Chappell in same house. Six years before Herreman (?) fatallystabbed Wm. Searls." Can anyone give us more info of this carnage?
