FAMILY LORE: "The story goes that Albert was wild and had been sparking an Indian girl and her family disapproved. Either her family killed him, or they had him killed. Anyway, his horse came home with an arrow sticking into the saddle. Celey, his mother, still had the saddle many years later."

THE TRUTH: "Another possibility is that one of his cowboy "friends" killed him. We have a picture of Albert taken with this man."
