Bill, Just wondering Do you know what became of the Manson Family Children? I know Mary Brunner's son was raised by her parents and have seen photographs of him but what about Susan Atkins and Sandra Good's children? I assume that Ruth Ann Moorehouse raised the child she was carrying at the time she was arrested for the murder attempt of Barbara Hoyt. Miss Lynn F.
Hi Lynn, Mary Brunner's Son: My photo was taken with Michael Brunner when I found him for KCBS television and he agreed to do the interview. It was inside Manson Behind The Scenes. Michael lived in the state of Colorado at the time of the interview and he worked for an appliance repair service. He was living with his girlfriend and they produced a child together. They seemed happy together. Michael was kind, warm, intelligent, and he dreamed of going into the real estate business. He moved from Colorado to his birth place city. Susan Atkins's son given up for adoption, and he was raised by a family in medicine of some kind. I understand that he does not know who his mother really is and as of 1994 there was no contact between them. Former attorney for Atkins, Debbie Fraiser tried to locate the son during the time that I hung around with her, visiting Susan at CIW, going up to the property of the Tate murders, the LaBianca house, Spahn's Ranch and Barker Ranch. Sandra Good's son went to college and is said to have been a star player. He went by the name of "Buckey" according to the KCBS producer who spoke with Blue.

I know nothing about the real Ruth Ann, but Ed Sanders told me years ago that he traced her living in MN, raising 3 kids. One of Charles Manson's son committed suicide in the state of CO and I interviewed the cops to make sure it was really him. He heard falsely that Manson was to get out of prison. It was a story in a tabloid too. Kitty's children- I spoke with the daughter several times by phone back in 199094? She was a swimmer or diver in high school and rather good. Robert Kenneth Beausoleil. I spoke with the daughter in person at her residence that just happened to have been the same house that Kitty lived in during her days with the Manson family. Cappy's twins - were beautiful at age 6, very bright in school, and I understand they hang around with friends in the desert community. I have interviewed their friends I met on the streets of Trona some years ago. Her oldest son was named Elf - in honor of the wishes of Manson. Manson called the children in the family Elves. He was a motorcycle enthusiast. Her other son went with us to Barker Ranch on the trip that the Esquire Magazine reporter covered. He had a great sense of humor. T.J. - I met the daughter from that time and witnessed a real fight between TJ and her when TJ yelled that she was "a no good f------ Bitch and did not care if she died or not. Get out of the f------house!" I felt sorry for her. She was hippie like and very pretty. She also appeared quite unloved and needy.
Gypsy - Catherine Share - I met her son in 1993 when I traveled to Texas with the producer of KCBS television and the cameraman. I told the story in the book Manson Behind The Scenes published in 1997. He was a hansom young man serving in the United States Marine Corps. This trip followed the interview with Michael Brunner in Colorado.
Bill, Thanks so much for the prompt reply. I had forgotten about the other children besides Susan and Sandra's. I assume Sandra's child was put in Foster Care or adopted? Books and articles I have read about her life after Manson was incarcerated did not mention a child. I always enjoy receiving email from you and reading your web page because you do seem to know more about the case than anyone else I have come in contact with. Some of the books I have read on the case, the authors seem to not even know as much as I do and report things I know are wrong. I have come across books that also misidentify people in pictures. Thanks once again for answering my question.
