Hi there, this is the Pensapedia administrator. Are you Robert Lewis, the author of the report mentioned? You raise some pretty serious allegations, and if there's any copyright infringement inherited on our part, I want to resolve it. If we can verify the use of your report in Mr. Appleyard's research, I will of course add a credit for your work on the relevant Pensapedia articles. Can you specify the "copyright restrictions contained within the report that included non-transferal beyond personal use"? Copyright applies to the text of a work (i.e. specific wording), not the facts contained therein. — admin • talk 11:27, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
Yes, I am the original author of the document. Yes, I can back up my sources through source citation. The University of West Florida is investigating the use of my work by Mr. Appleyard as it applies to internships. The original source listing Henri Peire as sheriff was the "Papers of Andrew Jackson, Volume 5." The biographical information was obtained through a series of emails to Bonnie Bess Wood, a historian and director of the Pere Rouquette Library at St. Joseph Seminary in Louisiana. Her information, in turn, was obtained through an unpublished genealogical book written by Philip Green.
