Jesse James - 1017 Troost Ave,
Posted by: Greg Ellison (ID *****7835) Date: March 13, 2010 at 10:54:35
  of 46482

Ted Yeatman writes on page 259 of his book FRANK AND JESSE JAMES THE STORY BEHIND THE LEGEND as follows: "He (Frank James) would at least stay around Kansas City long enough to help Jesse move to a house at 1017 Troost Avenue in early October. In April 1882, Zee James would tell a reporter that she had not seen Frank "since last September," when he met his wife at their home on Troost."

So once again the traditional story of Jesse James has contradicting "facts". Was this a new house on Troost and when exactly did they move there? Did Jesse James and Frank Poor live in the same neghborhood?
