      "James and Rachel had several children. One, Althea Hughes, married John O. Nash. Althea and John had more kiddies, one of which was Frank Nash. Frankie's mama died when he was young..maybe 12 (although some say she died when he was 2). At any rate, after Althea died, John O Nash moved to Oklahoma around the turn of the century and opened the Nash Hotel in Hobart, OK. Frank followed him there, where he soon became bored with hotel life and joined the Army. When he returned to Hobart, he worked for the hotel for a while, but soon became an accomplished thief. One thing led to another until, in and out of prison, he escaped from Leavenworth in 1930. On June 16 1933, at a horse race in Arkansas, the FBI arrested him, caught the train for Kansas City to transport him back to Leavenworth, and the rest is history.....known as the Kansas City Massacre.
