A. J. Bast

Various rumors cast him as a gunslinger and/or a robber. Cornelius A. Allen, a distant cousin, told the author in a MAY 2007 interview that A.J. Bast was rumored to be "... a robber, stole a box of gold, buried it on border of the Vernoy property in the pasture land. People would come out with metal detectors to find the metal box. Never found anything like that - dad was with them while they looked."
