I have been told by my now decessed Grandparents that we are decendants of Bat Masterson. Along with everyone else in the world to I guess. Everything I have read says Bat did not have any children. Or none he knew about or claimed maybe.
My Great Grandmother is Charlotte A. Masterson Mills. She married my Great Grandfather Joseph Mills. They had 15 children. Dec 1, 1916 Joseph and Charlotte left Powersville, MO and moved to Sulphur Springs, AR where Joseph became executor of the million dollar will of William Lewis who was the publisher of the New York Times. Bat Masterson at that time was a sports wriiter for the NY Times.
My Great Grandmother (Charlotte A. Masterson Mills) and her brother William H. Masterson are buried beside each other here in Sulphur Springs, AR. I was told Charlotte and William were Bat's children. But I have not been able to prove that for sure since there was no birth certificates back during that time.
