Jernigan & Joiner - Black Bart, The Search is Over

Robert E. Jernigan and Wiley Joiner have spent the last 32 years researching what happened to Charles Earl Bowles, AKA Black Bart, and believe he died in 1914 in Marysville and is buried in the Marysville Cemetery under the name of Charles Wells.

"Black Bart, The Search is Over" published April 2016 by the authors/local historians is now available for purchase.

The Yuba County Historic Resource Commission is looking through the research and source notes provided by Jernigan and Joiner. If the evidence holds up, Marysville will have another piece of frontier history to share.
