Howard Mudd is from nearby Midland. For years there was a physician in Saginaw that tried to clear his grandfather or great-grandfather's name.

Dr Mudd was the one who treated John Wilkes Booth's broken leg after he shot Lincoln. Of course, Dr Mudd had no way of knowing this at the time. He was merely doing his medical duty, but the hysteria of having a sitting President assasinated brought an urge to punish anyone and everyone remotely connected to it. Dr Mudd was convicted and sentenced.

It's a small world sometimes.
