    Historic Accuracy in Question

    When I was reading The Barbary Coast, my great-great Grandfather's name, George Reuben came up. Asbury said he was a crimp. Claimed GG-G'ma Mary Reuben ran a boarding house. He had everything right about them except what they did. He confused them with George & Mary Roeben. G'pa Reuben owned a store on California St., Yankee Notions & Fine Goods. That error perpetuated through later histories. Asbury didn't care about the details, just the story. There are many errors in this book but it IS a great read.

    barbary coast one minor correction

    My grandfather talked about correcting one mistake the author made in writing about my grandfathers brother. The author wrote, Ed Pincus' eye was gouged out in a fight. My grandfather said it was an accident.A friend was twirling a cane, and alas caught him in the eye.
