The Thomas Horn, Martin's son, whose obituary is elsewhere on this website, supposedly visited his Uncle Tom while the latter was in jail in Cheyenne. Newspaper reports are fragmentary; there is no documentation, for example, jail visitation records.

Correction to my last post: It was Martin who apparently visited his brother, Tom, while in jail in Cheyenne.
Martin's son, Tom, is the gentleman who died in the 1990s in Idaho.
