PIRATES IN SAINT LOUIS

Jean Baptiste Lafitte has a great following in his one-time home of New Orleans, and is famous for providing his band of pirates, 1000 strong, to General Jackson in the War of 1812.
He disappeared around 1826, but a journal purportedly by Lafitte surfaced in the 1950s. This journal says that he eventually moved to Saint Louis, under the name John Lafflin, to raise a family; he died in the 1850s and is reportedly buried in the nearby Mississippi River town of Alton, Illinois.

THERE MAY EVEN BE BURIED TREASURE HERE

According to Geologic Wonders And Curiosities Of Missouri, by Thomas R. Beveridge, Blackbeard the pirate may have buried his treasure in Jefferson County, Missouri, located just south of Saint Louis County.

Thanks to the horse, Jesse James and crew thoroughly covered Missouri in a relatively short period of time, but Blackbeard the pirate chose the hard way to leave his calling card... exceptionally high waters during the rainy season permitted Blackbeard to go up the valley of the Joachim (creek) and into the area that is now Harrison Lake.
Receding water left his pirate vessel stranded in the Harrison Lake area and his loot was buried near the natural bridge south of the present lake. The ship was then rolled on logs for 4 miles overland to be launched in the Mississippi River near Crystal City.
The treasure legend has apparently been taken seriously by some and resulted in small scale digging.




Wikipedia

After the Revolutionary War, American river piracy began to take root in the mid-1780s along the upper Mississippi River, between Spanish Upper Louisiana, around St. Louis and the confluence with the Ohio River at Cairo. In 1803, at Tower Rock, the U.S. Army dragoons, possibly from the frontier army post up river at Fort Kaskaskia, opposite St. Louis, raided and drove out the river pirates.

HUNT BANDIT PAIR IN WOODS NEAR PEVELY

Pevely, Sep. 6.-- A manhunt was in progress today for two heavily-armed men who fled on foot into a rugged area after a gun battle with a highway patrolman yesterday.
The youthful pair of gunmen abandoned a stolen car on a side road after a chase that reached 85 miles an hour and was marked by an exchange of gunfire.
Twenty-one guns, ammunition, about 200 rings and other jewelry stolen in a burglary at Rockford, Ill., Monday night were found in the abandoned car.
The fugitives apparently were armed with 10 other guns taken in the burglary.
The search this morning centered in a wooded hilly section of a few farms west of Highway 61 and between Pevely and Antonia, Mo. This area is about 25 miles south of St. Louis.





Fair Play (Ste. Genevieve) August 5, 1893 Pg3

On Wednesday night of this week some miscreants took pleasure in breaking two of the courthouse windows, denting the door and smashing the street lamp in front of the building. The authorities are doing their best to find out who perpetrated the ugly deed and if the guilty ones are caught they will be made to suffer.

CHASE CAUSES EXCITEMENT

Detectives McCarthy and Dooley, with pistols in their hands, chased Harry Skropsky of No. 1447 Biddle street, from Broadway to Chestnut street to the alley on Olive, between Broadway and Sixth street, yesterday afternoon.
E.J. Gildersleeve, a ticket broker at No. 104 North Broadway, charges Skropsky with petit larceny.
Gildersleeve was selling a ticket to a customer, who laid down $15 on the counter to pay for it. Skropsky, who was standing in the office, grabbed it and ran out the door.
Gildersleeve gave chase and shouted for the police.
Detectives McCarthy and Dooley were in the vicinity and heard Gildersleeve's cries. Drawing their revolvers they joined in the chase.
Skropsky ran west on Chestnut street to the alley, and then turning north dashed toward Olive street. The detectives overtook him as he ran out on to Olive.





On March 2, 1920, Aden Baker, a white man, was arrested and charged with the murder of Jeff Banks, a negro, in Banks' saloon at 001 South Fifth street in St. Joseph after a day of heavy drinking.

The Weekly Intelligencer (Lexington, Mo) February 24, 1894 Pg2

Dr. A.B. Deustrow, a millionaire physician, at St. Louis, murdered his wife and child last week while he was in a drunken stupor. He pleads that it was an accident.
He was, it is supposed, crazed by whiskey, as he, at all other times, was a faithful husband.
The law will deal out justice to him. His money, thank God, cannot save him from paying the penalty for his heinous crime, even though poor retribution his life may be for the two innocent ones he sacrificed.

MAN ACCUSED OF COUNTERFEITING TO GET HEARING

Modle Sears of Morehouse, charged by the Federal Government with counterfeiting the worst looking sort of bogus money secret service operatives have ever seen, was in the city jail today awaiting a preliminary hearing next Saturday before U.S. Commissioner John A. Ferguson.
Date for the hearing was set Saturday afternoon at a conference of the commissioner with E.M. Munger of Chaffee, attorney for Sears.
To await the hearing, Sears was remanded to jail after failing to make $1500 bond. Secret service operatives have three five and ten dollar bills which they say Sears has been passing.
