Frank Hopkins made it all up, just as he made up so many things during his lifetime. He was a charlatan and a shyster who knew how to spin a good yarn. Don't give him credit for anything more than that, please.
It's a charming story but that's all
it is; a story.
In fact, Disney took all their 'based on a true story' hype off the movie once they were made aware that the story was untrue.
If you don't believe me, do your own research.
