Shared note
In 1930 he was living with his parents and was single. (See John Rainey Gault information.) In 1959 he was working as a filling station attendant when he was robbed at gunpoint by two teenaged boys (each 16 years of age). A policeman was responding to a report that someone had shot several times at a house. He was on the way to respond to that situation, when he saw the robbery of Alton in progress. The men took $38, but that was returned after the boys were arrested. The policeman who witnessed the robbery, shot one of the boys, and they were later captured. They had apparenty been involved in another fillling station robbery where one man had been killed and another injured. The boys said that they had obtained the guns during a pawn shop burglary. Information from the boys also implicated another 16 year old boy.
