I can buy that.
Let me rephrase that Blush

I can understand that.

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?

Its funny but during an impeachment trial a senator can literally hold up a sign that says "This vote for sale" and there is nothing anyone can do about it.

RE: Andrew Johnson - Mistress
I found a possible candidate for Ella/Nellie Starr in a later records. There was a prostitute of the same name and age living in Baxter Springs, Kansas in 1870. Although the census record lists a different birthplace Canada instead of Maryland and there may be a younger sister or relative named Carrie Starr at the Baxter Springs brothel which as far as I can tell isn't mentioned in any of the accounts of Booth's Ella Starr. Also don't forget the 1883 newspaper accounts of the fight over Ella's brother estate seem to imply Ella was living in Maryland or New York.

So I'm not sure these two Nellie Starrs are the same person but I thought I'd share what I've found to see what your thoughts are.
