Archie Payton Samuel
Birth: Jul. 26, 1866
Death: Jan. 26, 1875

Western Frontier Figure. Born in Clay, Missouri, he was the younger half-brother of American outlaws Frank and Jesse James. Suffering from mental retardation, he had a hard time growing up. His elder half-brothers Frank and Jesse were always in trouble with the law and the Samuel farm was often ransacked by other outlaws. On January 26, 1875, Pinkerton detectives, hoping to track down Frank and Jesse, surrounded the farm and they threw a bomb through the window. The bomb landed into the fire, exploded, killing Archie instantly and wounding his mother. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
