I am looking for anyone who may know information about Charles A. Ernst Sr. and/or Charles A. Ernst Jr. Charles Ernst Sr. worked a placer mine neer Leesburg called the Redemption Group. He shot a claim jumper through the hips there in the early 1940s and was sent to the Idaho State Pen thereafter. He was let out of prison about a year later dying of "comsumption." I am told that he lived out the rest of his days with a man by the name of Bill Sullivan in the Salmon area. I would greatly appreciate anyone with any information about these folks or anyone related to them.
