Ettie and the Doctor Book

GENEALOGY INDEX: SEE MASSIVE INDEX BELOW PRINTED LARGE ENOUGH FOR US OLD FOLKS TO READ.

This is a wonderful story based on a by the name of Ettie Webb and a book that she owned and lived by, called Dr. Chase’s Last Book of Receipts and Household Physicians. Living by this book, she saved a lot of lives, or tried to, including that of the Smith Family. Practicing out of this book, she even surprised a doctor by knowing more than he thought any of the frontiersman would, and made him angry because he couldn’t make as much money as he would have if she hadn’t of been there. Needless to say she knew what she was doing!

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 fearless frontiersman and pioneers of the Old West 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 frontiersman and pioneers, my indexed listings will include all Indian names mentioned in the story from this time on.
