It started when he was arrested for the murder of an aunt he lived with at age 22. Uppercue later turns up in Evanston, Ill.; Fargo, ND; St. Then, as the promoter for an expedition to the Alaskan Klondike in 1898, he brought so many participants and provisions, and so much mining machinery, that the group couldn't use the rugged trail. He again managed to bounce back, named in newspapers as a speaker at political events, and married his third wife, Ferguson's great-grandmother, who was some 30 years younger than he. Ferguson worked pretty hard there at the end to see his great-grandfather in a positive light, as someone who survived multiple setbacks and "stepped up" to care for his girls. As you could see in this episode (and as I've found in my own research), newspapers are a good source for tracing ne'er-do-well ancestors.
