Photograph of Frank E. Webner, Pony Express rider

Description:

A black and white photograph of Pony Express rider from the Historical Photograph File of the Bureau of Public Roads, 1896- 1963. There is some confusion on the real identity of the rider. Historical records (including census data) do not indicate that anyone of that name was in the right area or years to have been a rider. However, records also indicate that individuals with similar last names (Wegner, Wagner, etc.) did live at the right time and place to have been a rider. It is not unusual for family names to have a multitude of spellings due to census taker's mistakes or even simple lack of standardized spelling between family members.
