SHE WAS BORN TO FIND GOLD

“Captain Ellen Jack

She Was Born To Find Gold,â€

by Helen S. Phillips


BLACK QUEEN MINE

MEMORABILIA IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

FACTUAL REPRESENTATION

OF OUR WESTERN TREASURES

Folks, here is the story of Colorado’s Mining Queen entitled “Captain Ellen Jack – She Was Born To Find Gold,†by Helen S. Phillips – the story of Ellen Elliott who was born in England to a family of wealth and success. Later on, her father suffered reverses and she was sent to the United States. Here she fulfilled the prophecy of a fortuneteller who had said

SHE WAS BORN TO FIND TREASURE

And, did she find it. The article reports that her Black Queen Mine (located about a mile from Crystal City) sold for $25,000 and was later re-sold for 3 million and, after having produced the richest silver ore ever found in the district was evaluated at

FORTY TWO MILLION DOLLARS!

THIS IS HER STORY

Please read this. 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 the true and interesting woman pioneers of 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 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 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. 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.
