    Brigham Pleads Guilty.
    When is a Brigham not a Brigham? When he's Charles W. Bartlett. Charles made his living as a forger and swindler. While he currently has no known connection to this tree he has to be mentioned because he dragged the name of Brigham through the mud by operating for over half a century as "Paul Brigham". Any researcher can run across multitudes of newspaper reports of his crimes under the name of Brigham. it was not until he surrendered that his true name was revealed. When he confessed he said he was "trying to break into jail" He eventually succeeded in that and he spent the remainder of his life there. This article is from the Philadelphia (Pennsylvania) Times, Tuesday, January 28, 1896 page 2.
