The Caldwell Tribune, Saturday, October 20th, 1906

I wonder if that was Frank Steunenberg's engraved 1895 Savage rifle? We know his brother Will had it after Frank's assassination and later mentioned the rifle in a hand written last Will and Testament.  

"see that the guns get good keepers. And if any of Frank’s Boys ever show any tendency to guns & will take care of same; give them the gun that belonged to Frank the 30-303 savage."

I don't know where any of the guns belonging to my great grandfather or his brothers ended up. Unfortunately none of them are in my gun safe.
