More family members found

Through the website we have found family members...or more properly, they have found us! Today, Elizabeth Moriarty wrote Jeff. They may be meeting for the first time at the Wake on July 12.

She writes,

I've been meaning to write to you for some time, but with July 8th coming up, now seemed like a good time. I'm Soapy's daughter's (Mary Eva) son's (Michael Moriarty) son's (Jim Moriarty) daughter, which I believe makes us second cousins once removed. My fiance and I moved to Los Angeles a couple of years ago after I finished law school (I grew up in Milwaukee). We made a trip up to Skagway a few years ago but, unfortunately, couldn't be there for the wake, so I was pretty excited when I noticed that you have been holding a wake at the Magic Castle for the last few years. We would love to meet you there if possible next weekend. Anyway, I hope you and your family are doing well, and even if the Magic Castle thing doesn't work out, perhaps we can meet up at some other event some time soon.

We hope to see her and her fiance at the Magic Castle. Jeff sent her membership in Friends of Bad Man Soapy Smith.
