Questions from the members

Does anyone know what ever became of Sherry Cooper?
Or Madeline Cottage?

And what ever happened to Juanita Wildebushe?  She married Bob Berry one of Paul Crockett's mining friends.  Does anyone know if her real name was Juanita?  Any info anyone has would be greatly appreciated.

I know sherri ran off to canada with donkey dan after the murders - there's a great interview with them on Michael's Youtube channel.

Patty Cake- yes it was a good video. and thats pretty much all the info i know about her too.

St. Circumstance said...

I saw that too- but I have a question for you two hotties...

or anyone else who knows...

I thought Simi Sherri left the family fairly early, and Dan came along near the end...

How did they hook up?? Were they at the ranch at the same time????

eviliz said...

ST- i might be wrong so don't quote me- i know Danny was not with them from the beginning. i think when they settled into Spahn's for good, that is when he came along.

i don't know anything about Sherri. maybe she was like some others that went back and forth on loyalty. i would bet she met Danny at the ranchor maybe court. someone else i am sure will know.

Sherry Cooper and Barbara Hoyt fled from Manson and the family after Hoyt overheard Susan Atkins talking about the Tate murder to Ruth Ann Morehouse. When Manson found out the two girls had run away he was described as being furious and took off after them. He found them having breakfast in a diner and gave them $20 after the girls told Manson they wanted to leave. It is rumored that he later ordered select family members to go get them and bring them back or kill them.
On November 16, 1969 an unidentified body was found which was later identified as possibly being family member, Sherry Cooper.

i am assuming the body they thought was Sherri's was not. not sure of the date the body was found or the date of the youtube video.

i remember reading somewhere Ruby Pearl identified the shirt they found on the dead body as one she saw Sherri wearing. thought they all swapped clothes??

St. Circumstance said...

I read the same thing about Susan saying that- but Danny was not there yet to my knowledge- I never read anywhere or saw any of the documentaries where she returned...

?????

I think Sherri probably floated in and out of the circle the way Kitty did and perhaps still does. Unlike some of the other girls, Sherri was local. You could practically walk to Simi Valley from Spahn...well that may be an exaggeration, but I get the feeling she'd likely go home for a bath, a clean load of laundry and a burger every so often...

St. Circumstance said...

LOL- That would explain it- didn't know kitty had anything to do with them after she fled Barker...

If she did go back and forth to clean up and eat- she is my new favorite and LULU is out...

eviliz said...

ok the youtube video is from 1975. don't know what year the body was found.

eviliz said...

Kitty did go back and 4th from home to the ranches. did she X herself as well- i cant remember?

This was a something I always wondered about... In the Early editions of "The Family", it read Jane DoeXX, AKA "Stephanie Rowe". A Stephanie Rowe was arrested with the "Witches of Mendocino."

In the revised version her name is no longer in that sentence. Who was she? Any pics of her?

Also, somewhere in the revised "Family", it says Madeline Joan Cottage (Little Patty) was living with Bill Vance in MO.

beauders said...

yes kitty did x herself. there is video of her hanging with the others on temple and broadway.

eviliz said...

beauders- i thought so but wasn't positive

I read somewhere that Madaline Joan Cottage was committed to an asylum and She was originally from Pittsburgh. So who knows.

stuzo666 said...

Anyone know if sherri is around , I wanna meet her, she is cool

Unknown said...

If the body was found in Nov. 69, an the video of Sherry an Danny was made in 1975ish. .. there is no way it was Cooper.

Jenn Sully said...

If the body was found in Nov.69, and the video of Sherry an DeCarlo was made in 1975ish. . No way it was Cooper.

Liberty said...

That wasn't her body... Her and Danny DeCarlo got married and there's an interview with them both from the early 1970s
