In Reply to: Bank Robbery in Fairland and Wyandotte by Rick J. Gunter of 962

I was reading your account of your grandfather's bank robberies. I can't help but wonder if there were any other members of their gang for the 1934 robbery of the fairland state bank? My great grandmother married a man named William "Ted" Vaudra, Varda or Vardra Fancher in Little Rock Arkansas on December 1st. 1934. He had just robbed a bank and was on the run. His grandson recently replied to a post I had about him and he says that he robbed the Fairland Bank on November 28th, 1934. My aunt also thought he had robbed a bank in Texas, but according to his grandson he robbed a bank in Fairland in 1934. Just wondering if you had any other information. Not sure if they are connected...might have been a lot of bank robbers back then, the dates just stuck in my mind.
Coincidentally Ted Fancher wasn't caught until 1938 in Payette Idaho where he was living with my great grandmother and family. He was convicted but am not sure how much time he served.
