Everyday here at the James Preservation Trust requests come in for factual information. The fake & faker stuff gets blown out fairly easily. Queries about the partisan or outlaw careers of F & JJ get referred to published authorities or directed to authoritative resources. We handle most of the stuff related to the James family itself.
Today, however, produced the most unusual request ever to come in. The question came from Germany. The questioner asked is, " what his [Jesse James] most favorite food was or what he liked to eat."
The Trust has a couple of recipe books from James descendants a generation later than JJ, but nothing from his time. The only possible answer I could think of is "take-out."
Your thoughts, or facts if you have them?
