Genealogy of Bonnie and Clyde

The following newspaper articles are clippings extracted from The Dallas Dispatch.


     The city of Dallas turned out to welcome Clyde and Bonnie Thursday, but it was a morbidly curious crowd which stormed two funeral parlors until guards had to be placed over the bodies.
     All that remained of Clyde Barrow after six officers shot him to death near Gibsland Wednesday was a the Sparkman-Holtz-Brand undertaking parlors.  The body arrived early Thursday and before 8 a. m. the curious began to arrive.
     By 10 a. m. officials of the company were forced to lock the body up in an individual room and call the sheriff's office for help.  Two husky deputies were assigned and thruout the morning watched at the door.
     Likewise sought out was the silent form of Clyde's girlfriend and murdering companion, Bonnie Parker.  She lay in the McKamy-Campbell funeral parlor and when the crowds became more than officials of the company could handle, aid from the officers was sought.
     Bonnie was returned to Dallas after the body of Clyde had already reached the city.  Relatives claimed each and sought to protect them from the prying eyes of a sensation-seeking public.
     It is probable the funerals will be held Friday.
Unlike the poem which Bonnie penned.....
"Someday they’ll go down together
And they’ll bury them side by side
To few it’ll be grief, to the law a relief
But it’s death for Bonnie and Clyde."
They are buried in separate graves and even separate cemeteries.
