A family story: Justins Mother, Nora Etta Leatherman Dolan Biggs, was married to a man named zink. He was mean to grandma beating her up on a regular basis. The story goes that they roped off a street in Durango, I believe, and Justin whipped the crap out of "old man zink" as the family called him. I know, had I been there, I would have joined him. She was a dear sweet Christian woman who didn't deserve to be treated the way he treated her.

Justin I didn't know but have a news clipping that he worked for the railroad there in Durango. He was trying to throw the switch on the tracks for an on coming train. The switch broke and threw Justin into the path of the on coming train and it ran over his legs. He died in the hospital in Durango a few days later.
