Notes for WAYNE ST CLAIR:

SOURCE::::Claude Charles, June 28, 1999

NOTE by Phyllis Wagner Knusta:::::I cannot vouch for the validity of this story.

Wayne was 35 years of age at the time ofhis death. Claude Charles relayed the story to me of this horrendous tragedy. "The motorcycle was the same one that Uncle Sydney's son was killed on. Afterwards, the motorcycle was repaired and was in the possession of Wayne. Unfortunately, his life was not spared, he, too, was killed while riding it. After that Julian, a brother of Wayne, had the motorcycle put in a glass case and is still in his possession. He says no one else will be killed on it as long as he lives."
