Another Richard Trevithick[1]

My wife and I were married by a loner of a man whom we knew when we lived in Cordova, Alaska. He said he had been a lawyer for the Hell's Angels (motorcycle club) in Los Angeles, California. He had come to Alaska to "hide out and be left alone." He was a gentle, kind man who got to know my wife who was his bartender.

He died in Wasilla, Alaska in the mid-'90's and was buried in Palmer, Alaska, by his friend we knew as "Denny." His name was Richard Trevithick and always said, "You'd never know I come from royalty, would ya?" We never knew until I took a history class and learned of Richard Trevithick. I thought this might interest you. Thanks for your time. Our Rick was about 65-70 years old when he died.

Ed note. Possible family connection. This RT would have been born c1920
