Inbetween escapes, Donald spent much of his time running a bookie operation, mostly for bets on football games.

Searching through the DOC locator, I've found a few old timers but not many. Shorty Brewster, Ronald Williams, but that's about all the ones I recognized by name. I'm sure there are others. Also found James Worthington, one of Donald's escape partners, on the Federal Prison locator.

Anyway, Donald is doing time in Connecticut, and I live in San Francisco. So it takes a few weeks for us to pass information back and forth, but I will definitley pass the information about Ronald onto Donald. Thanks again.

PS: MY brother's full name is Donald Williamson.

I am looking for information on a guy names Curtis Renforth who was in Moundsville Pen and Im not sure if his nickname was from there or just the family but he went by slufoot. I am doing a family history and wanted to know if anyone had any info or knew him. thanks
