    +++|Frank Long's Story

    "During the John Dillinger raid at Little Bohemia in 1934, Frank Long [Neal Long's grandfather] was asked to help. After the shootout, the FBI, didn't have any money to pay him, so that gave him a .44 cal Smith and Sesson that they found in Baby Face Nelson's room. The family still has the gun and in tracing the gun they found that it had been stolen in St. Louis." ##1473 Hiller, "A Sayner Legend."##
