Charlie Manson's Woodstove. . .
Do you have any personal or family legends that may or may not be true?. . .→
[More:]Here is one of mine:
In the 70's I lived in the woods east of Chiloquin, OR, on some land that was surrounded by forest service land. Nice place, up a draw, a seasonal creek, a spring up the hill. etc. No electricity other than a balky generator.
We bought this old Ashley woodstove, and the guy who sold it to us said that it had been in the house that Manson and his family lived in.
There is a record of people associated with Manson living in that area, but no evidence that Manson did.
Still, it's too good of a story not to repeat.
What stories do you keep on telling, just 'cause their good stories?
