James Maybrick It should really be called the Maybrick Dairy; where else would you expect to find a cash cow being milked?

Default JTR in Galveston?

The attachment is quite intriguing, and I presume that Maybrick is the suspect that is being referred to. I've been on tour #1 and it was entertaining to say the least. Next time I go to Galveston I'll try the JTR-in-Galveston tour and report the proceedings back to the membership.

Galveston was a toddling town back in the late 19th century...the area known as The Strand was considered by some to be the Wall Street of The South.

It is probably a reference to the Melinda Mieling murder of December 1892.
I posted an article from the Galveston Daily News years ago about it.

You really think this is it, Howard? Don't forget that Shirley Harrison maintains that Maybrick the cotton merchant once went to Galveston, the cotton capital of the US at the time (pre 1900 hurricane), and others also maintain that Maybrick then went to Austin to commit the Servant Girl Murders of 1885.

I'll do this tour as soon as practical.

53rd post in the thread:

Tim....the tour guide might be pushing a connection to either Maybrick or Tumblety.....but a real murder was committed and for a brief moment it was thought that a Ripper or [I]the[/I] Ripper may have been in Galveston.

Galveston being a port city would be more likely a spot that a Ripper murder would occur in the minds of most people, me included, despite there not being anything to prove this, if that makes sense.

"and others also maintain that Maybrick then went to Austin to commit the Servant Girl Murders of 1885."
-Tim-

They can maintain all they want. I'd be embarassed to even suggest Maybrick might have had something to do with those crimes. Its preposterous.

When the gruesome diaries of James Maybrick were unearthed 10 years ago, the last piece of a century-old puzzle was in place. The discovery offered the strongest evidence yet as to the true identity of Jack the Ripper. It suggests that Maybrick, a Liverpool merchant who, furious with his American wife’s infidelity, went periodically to London to butcher prostitutes who walked the streets close to where he had first seen his wife with her lover. Now, Shirley Harrison presents startling new evidence that Maybrick was also in Austin, Texas at the time of a horrific killing spree—eight murders, all likened to those of the Ripper. Reproducing James Maybrick’s chilling diaries in full, Jack the Ripper: The American Connection reveals a shocking twist in the tale.

Won't someone risk $2.09 plus shipping?
