Roylsden #371

Of course, Joshua McGinley lost his land acquisitions. The County Judiciary decided against him keeping what he'd got illegally, so his recent land purchases were confiscated and sold off at auction when he was in prison. The auction itself was pretty much low key and, on the say-so of the County Judiciary, open only to Roylsden residents. Sheriff Cole bought Taya Two-Horses place and Clint Dempsey bought Mrs Prendergast's. Before we was wedded, Clint sold it to the railroad and we all lived happily, and richer, ever after.
And that might have been the end of the story.

    Went with Dad to New York probably. But what happened then - if they even stayed with old Joshua - that may be worth another drabble or three :)
