Dacus and Buel wrote the following about Sexton and the StLFD:

I wonder if H. C. Sexton is related to actor Brent Sexton, a native St. Louisan? There is a resemblance. . .

I can see the resemblance and wouldn't be surprised if they were related somehow. There are a lot of Sexton's in StL, Irish immigrants who arrived here between 1860 and 1880. I wouldn't swear to it but I think that most of them came from Limerick.
