Joseph M. Fouray/Furey

I am looking for information on Joe Furey. The last name has been spelled FOURAY, FORAY and FUREY. Joseph M. Fouray was an international confidence man who died in a Texas prison about 1923. Born abt 1875, NY, parents listed as being born in Ireland (per 1910 Census) His occupation was listed as a "traveling salesman."
It is said that he was a bigamist and had another wife. Dede Winters was his wife and they were married in Indiana before 1910.
I believe this man is my great grandfather and he never married my great grandmother, instead he married her cousin, Dede Winters.
Is there anyone with information on him?
