THE STORY OF TUMLINSON’S

PERALTA STONE MAPS


PERALTA STONE MEMORABILIA

IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

Folks, I had a lovely researcher of the Tumlinson family ask me if I had anything on them. Well, I sure do. This is absolutely one of the most fascinating subjects that I have ever run into. As a matter of fact, the events of this story have been written up by every one from J. Frank Dobie to Life magazine. So it’s far from me to make a decision but, suffice it to say, that after you read this version – it does not clear the air. And, although it has a catchy title it leaves you wanting to know more but first, it’s your to read entitled

ARE THE PERALTA STONE MAPS A HOAX

Well, the author here – Bernice and Jack McGee kinda wanta lead you to believe that the treasure is made up. But truthfully however, the words of J. Frank Dobie and Peg Leg Tumlinson kinda leave me to believe otherwise. There were many a western story published – the common ones about Cowboys and Indians are listed on Ebay every day but the rarer ones about an old storied western treasure and the maps (which are photoed here) leave me to believe otherwise. Frankly, this is seldom found. Collectors treasure them and their price guide value rises every day. They are hard to find. I hunt them out because really the better, untold and rarer stories were published in the rest.

Here’s one of ‘em.

FOLLOWING PURCHASE AND PAYMENT, IF YOU WILL WRITE ME OF YOUR SPECIAL NAME OR INTEREST, I WILL DO A FREE SEARCH OF MY WEBSITE AND UNINDEXED STORIES AND NAMES.

IF I FIND SOMETHING THAT I THINK MERITS YOUR INTEREST, I WILL WRITE A REVIEW AND PLACE IT ON EBAY AND GIVE YOU NOTICE AND A HEAD START TO

BUYITNOW!

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.

PERALTA STONE MEMORABILIA

IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

While others clip ads from magazines, I save history. 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 Ebay 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. 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.

Buyer pays postage of $3.50 First Class Postage to U. S., $4.75 to Canada. $4.60 Priority Mail. $11.00 for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax. Thanks,

Tom
