Folks, we are never too old to learn. Before I read this story, I thought the term Jayhawkers referred to those Kansas citizens who opposed the South in the Civil War. How surprised I was when I found this story of Texas Jayhawkers who hid out in the Big Thicket of Texas – and, quite successfully, I might add. They elected not to fight - but with the fortunes of the South resulting in battle after battle lost, the Confederate Army needed new recruits and soon, a Confederate Officer, Captain James Kaiser took on the task of running down the Texas Jayhawkers. He deemed it necessary to burn the Jayhawkers out and garner the title of Kaiser Burnout for history. Frankly, I had not read this story of the Big Thicket of Texas entitled:

Fire At Union Wells

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 Texas Jayhawkers and their attempts to avoid service as Confederate Army Soldiers 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 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.

Folks, sooner or later – Genealogists are going to realize that their family kinfolks are lying 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, its worth all the time I spend. As a tribute to the honor of our American Indians, my indexed listings will include all Indian names mentioned in the story from this time on.

TEXAS JAYHAWKERS

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 good condition, the cover is 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 Mail to U. S.; $5.00 Priority; $12.30 for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax. Thanks,

Tom
