"Show my son Cyrus your bullet wounds"

Frank and Jessie James
My Papa King told me a story about a day when he was with his father 
took him to town and at the general store in Montevallo, 
Missouri in 1900 they saw a man named Frank James.  

My great grandfather Charles Elmer King said "Hey Frank lift up your shirt 
and show my son Cyrus your bullet wounds". 

So Frank James lifted his shirt and my Papa King saw the scars from the 
bullet wounds on his chest and back.

That was a pretty unforgettable experience for that little boy named 

Cyrus Elmer King who became the Chief of Police in Vacaville, CA.
