  • Notes 
    • 21 June 1906 Bucks County Gazette (Bristol, Pennsylvania):
      County Seat News, Doylestown, June 19, 1906
      During the past week a Doylestown young man, Walter Steever, has achieved undesirable notoriety in Riverside, N. J., and Chester, Pa., where acts of violence have been ascribed to him. The accidental shooting of a man in a tussle at Riverside
      is easily explained as the result of a scuffle, but the connection of the young man with a letter threatening a well known manufacturer of Chester and the subsequent supposition of the police in thinking Steever an anarchist are rather
      far-fetched. The young man, when he resided in Doylestown, was believed to be of unsound mind and on one occasion is said to have attempted suicide. Mental deficiency is probably the explanation of his conduct.
