Dear friend, in the last three weeks, three collectors have purchased 7 of my offerings each (21). There must be a reason. A major news writer's article AuctionBytes-Update ISSN 1528-6703 Ina Steiner, Editor, has stated that EBay intends to do away with EBay Stores. So, it is very simple, access such as EBay furnishes now will be lost. But you can still utilize the great EBay Search function. Just follow the instructions below, place your kin folk name in the search column and it will reveal all the stories I have reported with that name.
It's as simple as that.
On all multiple items after the first, you will receive a 10% discount. Postage will be combined and refund granted if saved.
Please visit our Store Page for an easier search of all the listings we have to offer.
In the left hand corner, insert the name or subject you are searching for. Click on text and title description, hit go and our offerings that contain the name or subject you are searching for will appear.
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,- its worth all the time I spend.
OF OUR WESTERN TREASURES
THE DEMOSS FAMILY SINGERS
LYRIC BARDS OF THE WEST
? I?m thinking of a beautiful land,
With rivers and valleys and mountain grand
Oregon ? Sweet Oregon
From the mountain high peaks
all covered with snow,
A sweet,kimpid streamlet doth flow
Past the home of my youth,
which I ever adore,
O Oregon, my home!.?
Folks, I am never ceased to be amazed by the history found in old western stories ? their title given to attract readers but really missing the history involved in the story. Here is ?LYRIC BARDS OF THE WEST? by Florence Cain who writes a compelling history of the Reverend Henry DeMoss family of talented singers and musicians who really took the west by storm. Their first concert was performed before a little band of Blue Indians sitting on their blankets ? in between ? concerts at churches, fairs, expositions ? in fact, every whistle stop in the west ? and finally ?
APPEARING BEFORE ROYALTY IN ENGLAND AND FRANCE
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 great entertainers 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 cause 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 pioneers. During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer?s shelf8. 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.

LYRIC BARDS OF THE WEST

DEMOSS 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 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., $4.50 to Canada. $5.00 Priority Mail. $12.30 Par Avion (Air Mail) for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-? % sales tax. Thanks,
