A Note from the Author---
Dear Piatt Researchers,
I've just published
a book that features one of the most famous Piatts, Colonel Donn Piatt,
of the Ohio Piatt castles. Donn Piatt shared a cabin on a transatlantic
voyage with one of the most infamous criminals of the nineteenth century,
Alexander Keith, Jr., also known as William King Thomas, who was responsible
for the deaths of 81 people. Piatt wrote about his strange voyage
with Keith in his newspaper, the Washington Capitol. The book is
The Dynamite Fiend: The Chilling Tale of a Confederate Spy, Con
Artist, and Mass Murderer (Palgrave Macmillan), now available in all major
bookstores. I believe it may be of interest to many in the family.
Cheers, Ann Larabee
