MATTHIAS SPLITTLOG

MILLIONAIRE INDIAN

Folks, Matthias Splitlog was an Indian with a million dollar grab bag. An Indian without an education but he was a mechanical genius, a shrewd business man, and the first, if not the only Indian, to build a railroad, become a millionaire and a legend among both Indian and white man. Heck, he even had his own railway car decorated with ornate gold leaf with the name

"Bird in Hand."

Please read this. There were many a western story published – the common ones about cowboy and Indians are listed on Ebay every day but the rarer ones about the contributions of Indians to the old west like this one are seldom found. Collectors treasure them and their price guide value rises every day. They are hard to find. I hunt them out cause 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 UNINDEXED STORIES AND NAMES.

GENEALOGYIMAGESOFHISTORY

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 pioneers. During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer’s shelf gathering dust. Humbly, I am trying to keep our history alive. 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.

I hope you appreciate the effort.

Folks, sooner or later - Genealogists are going to realize that their family kinfolks are laying on some dealer's dusty shelves. If I can contribute to finding one little name or photo of that long lost ancestor you have been waiting to find, it’s worth all the time I spend.

MATTHIAS SPITLOG, A MECHANICAL GENIUS

AND A SHREWD BUISNESS MAN

As many of you know, I specialize in finding old stories of long ago that have been overlooked, seldom found and rarely read. Here is the story entitled "MATTHIAS SPLITLOG: MILLIONAIRE INDIAN," by Wayne T. Walker which relates the history of the Splitlog genealogy and the feats of this great American. A revealing telling of this true story. You will not read this anywhere else. What a story, Rare Story!!! Great Pictures. You will love it as it was published in this UNUSUAL AND RARE old western magazine of many years ago.

OLD SPLITLOG 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 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, hard to find 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 Priority; $4.50 to Canada; $11.00 via USPS First Class Mail International for International Mail. (We have been very disappointed in the time frame for our international mailing. It seems our post office is now mailing surface mailing and it sometimes take over 30 days to get to destination. If you care for faster delivery, just tell me and I will figure faster delivery.) Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax. Thanks,

Tom
