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.

A PRISONER OF THE CHEYENNE


INDIAN WAR MEMORABILIA

IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

THE ARMY RESCUED FOUR GIRLS TAKEN PRISONER WHEN THE REST OF THEIR FAMILY WERE SLAUGHTERED

Folks, in the old west, many a pioneer family was slaughtered. Seldom, however, is the story written and chronicled as well as this one. Here, there were nine members of the John German family when they made camp near Monument Station, Kansas on September 11, 1874. At dusk, the Cheyenne war party struck and slaughtered five of them, taking four girls prisoners. This story also recounts the activities of American Troops of the 19th Infantry and what happened to the four sisters. It is a great story entitled

“A PRISONER OF THE CHEYENNEâ€

by Sam Bloom – one of the best of western authors.. Course, 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 capture and massacre of a frontier family 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 COLLECTIN AND UNINDEXED STORIES AND NAMES. TOM RUSSELL COLLECTION

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. 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.


A PRISONER OF THE CHEYENNE

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.

A PRISONER OF THE CHEYENNE

By Sam Bloom

INDIAN WAR 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 Postage to U. S., $4.50 to Canada. $5.00 Priority Mail. $12.30 Par Avion (Air Mail) for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax. Thanks,

Tom
