    There is a legend to Glen Rose that says that in the 1870s a dying resident called John St. Helen confessed that he was really John Wilkes Booth (assassin of Lincoln). Instead of dying however, the poor man recovered, then found it convenient to kill himself. The witnesses who claimed to have had intimate knowledge of John Wilkes Booth came forward and identified marks on the body and confirmed John St Helen was indeed John Wilkes Booth.
