Summary, etc.: Catalina "Lena" Reno was related to people who committed robbery and other serious crimes. The author had never heard of the Reno brothers, or of the Reno Gang (10 members of the Gang were hung by vigilantes, which included 3 of the brothers), until she learned of her great-grandmother's connection to them. And she had never heard of anybody, Renos or otherwise, being credited with "Inventing" train robberies (committed first peacetime train robbery October 6, 1866). Another thing she learned was that John Reno served time in the Missouri State Penitentiary in Jefferson City for his role in the robbery of the county treasurer's safe in Gallatin, Missouri. John served 10 of the 25 years, and when released published a book "The Life of John Reno, of Seymour, Indiana, the world's first train robber". Wilkison Reno and Julia Freyhafer had 6 children (Franklin, John, Clinton, Simeon, William, Laura Amanda).
