George & Anna Damon with John R. Lee....three people who, according to the prevailing theory. saw the key left by the Farmhand in Cranford, NJ( 3 Madison Avenue).

Nina Brown located Anna Damon's photo in early 2022....and yours truly found George's on March 6, 2022

                                       New York Evening World
                                               April 23, 1902   
( Ironically eleven years to the day from Carrie Brown's fatal visit to the East River Hotel)


Did George Damon assist in releasing an innocent man or was Damon partly responsible for the release of a killer ?

Ameer Ben Ali


Photo found by Nina Brown in 2020
