SILVER QUEEN

OF THE SAN JUANS


Folks, here is the story entitled SILVER QUEEN OF THE SAN JUANS by Agnes Wright Spring who tells the story of Lena Allen Webster-Stoiber-Rood-Ellis called “Captain Jack” or “Jack Pants” by the miners of Silver Lake Basin, Silverton, Colorado. Seem she made and married money as her husbands mined silver. Realizing wealth in unimaginable sums before the depression days – this is her life among the wealthy of the world.

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 rich 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 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 history alive.

I hope you appreciate the effort.

SILVER QUEEN OF THE SAN JUANS

By Agnes Wright Spring

OLD COLORADO MINING 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 $3.00 First Class Postage to U. S., $4.50 to Canada, $4.05 Priority Mail, $10.00 Par Avion (Air Mail) for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax. Thanks,

Tom
