89 - William Etlinger

In 1909, in the book Pennsylvania Mountain Stories, Henry W. Shoemaker recounted the tale of “The Black Wolf of Oak Valley.” The names in this story were changed, and after digging around, I found the original tale that this story was based on: the 1896 saga of outlaw William Etlinger.
