   According to the article "For the Sake of Sue" (which is, incidentally,
where I got Williams' age) Sue was, indeed, found on reservation land.  I
suppose Williams may not actually live on that land, but it is apparently
within the boundaries of the reservation.  Perhaps the article was in error
on this point.

   I also note from the article that I may have been in error in placing the
value of Sue at 3 million.  He as apparently received offers as high as 60
million.  Makes me wonder why he hasn't already sold yet ... perhaps they
weren't serious offers.
