Brushy Bill's family Bible as referred to in the article was not his at all. Oliver Pleasant Roberts is supposedly listed in that Bible as being born in 1879, yes. But Brushy Bill was not Oliver Pleasant Roberts. He was Oliver's cousin, William Henry Roberts, taken in by Catherine Bonney, his mother's half sister and raised as her own child. In fact, Brushy had a family Bible of his own which listed him as William Henry Roberts, born 1859. The article was very interesting and well written but the author seemed to jump to the conclusion that Brushy was a fraud just because of a Bible that documented his cousin's birth.
John Miller could not have been Billy The Kid. He was the wrong height and his facial dimensions did not match those of the real Billy. I've studied this for about 15 years and I am thoroughly convinced William Henry Roberts, alias William Henry Bonney (or Antrim), alias Brushy Bill Roberts was the real Billy The Kid.
