In Reply to: Cleasy Cheek shot and killed Jim Pruett by Mary Lynne Pruett of 203

I have been working on the Des Moines Cemetery for another website and photographed Cleasy Cheek's headstone. I subsequently did some research to find his date of birth and date of death and found that HE was killed by Jim Pruett on October 17, 1914 and Jim Pruett was tried and convicted of that. He appealed and his conviction was upheld. I think your headline is most inappropriate but maybe you really did not know the facts of the case before writing it. I did not know Cleasy Cheek but it does not seem fair that his name is in your subject in the statement you made even if he has been dead all these years. If you Google "Cleasy Check, Union Co., NM, that is the information you get, which is erroneous.
