Tribune Tuesdays: A Small Heritage

From: The Oakland Tribune, 17 October 1912

Seek Missing Heir to Small Heritage

Chief of Police Walter J. Petersen has been asked to locate Robert J. McGregor, who has been missing for the past eight years, and for whom a small heritage is in litigation in Seattle, Wash. Joseph Kiernan, a relative of the missing McGregor, sent a letter to Chief Petersen today, stating that his relative had been last heard of in Oakland about eight years ago. Kiernan states that if McGregor can be found, he will help him to gain the fortune, but that if it can be proved that the man is dead, he would like to assume possession as he is the next heir.
