Jesse James

"Jessie James, a 33rd degree Mason...assumed the aliases of some seventy-three individuals. He claimed that one of the aliases he used in later years was that of William A. Clark, the copper king and later US senator from Nevada." Jesse claimed that he would find a cowboy somewhere of similar appearance to his own, shoot him in the face and leave some of his personal belongings on the body. He would send a family member to identify the body; this way he lived to be over 100 years old. Ralph Epperson's book
