Title: Saddle Tree of Jesse James

Description: This saddle tree reputedly belonged to the Missouri outlaw Jesse James. It is difficult to authenticate this claim, but its provenance offers good circumstantial evidence. Jesse James's mother and stepfather, Zerelda James and Reuben Samuel, delivered it to a collector who then gave it to the donor who in turn presented it to the museum.
