2 Thomas Wandless, burglar (1880s-1910), East Coast
Thomas Wandless was a temporarily famous burglar between about 1900 and 1910. Apparently the son of John Thomas Wandless & Margaret Bennett of Brooklyn, New York, he robbed houses for years until he was shot while attempting a burglary and died a few weeks later in the hospital in Passaic, New Jersey. In between, he staged a dramatic escape from the Boston jail with the help of a young singer who he married while in jail, inherited a large sum of money from an aunt while in prison, and fathered a son with the singer, Mazie or May Coyle.
