TOMBSTONE MEMORABILIA IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING An Army Scout named Ed Schieffelin found a silver lode in the quartz float of a hillside at the old Brunckow mine. When asked by his boss Al Sieber what he was doing, he had a one word answer,: “prospecting”. The boss laughed and said: “All you’ll ever find here is your tombstone” and thus the name TOMBSTONE! And how did the great Arizona strike get its name? Why, the assayer, Richard Gird said to finder: Ed, You’re A Lucky Cuss! FACTUAL REPRESENTATION NOT RETREAD HISTORY Folks, seems that this story was published because the first man buried in Boothill was buried in a white shirt. Well, to me, the story is full of the genealogy of early Tombstone and Arizona citizens. Well documented family history.

Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our western heroes. During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer’s shelf gathering dust. Because Old Western History and Memorabilia was printed before computer indexing, I index every item I sell. This complete index will be bound and included in this offering at no additional cost. Humbly, I am trying to keep our history alive. I hope you appreciate the effort. THEY BURIED UNCLE JOHN IN BOOTHILL By Bebe HicksFolks, sooner or later - Genealogists are going to realize that their family kinfolks are laying on some dealer's dusty shelves.

It’s a shame that our past is being lost. It’s as simple as that. My wife kids me that after I find a piece I like, buy it, read it, research it, take a picture, scan it, write the blurb, pay the eCRATER entry fee and commission, that I end up making about 50 cents an hour. But, OH HOW I LOVE THIS OLD WESTERN HISTORY. What a story, Rare Story!!! Great Pictures. THIS IS VOLUME 1, NO. 1, THE ONLY 1 ISSUE AS PUBLISHED IN MINT CONDITION. You will love it as it was published in this old complete and seldom found western magazine of many years ago. The issue is in excellent condition, the cover is pristine and in vibrant color. As clearly stated in my description, this is featured story in a rarely found and seldom read unusual and complete western magazine. I don't give out name of publication or date because I have caught competitors copying my index and work and trying to sell it as theirs. I hope you understand.
