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.

GEARY, OKLAHOMA -

A WILD LITTLE TOWN ON THE PLAINS


OLD GEARY, OKLAHOMA MEMORABILIA

IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

Folks, in stories of our western past are the names and history of the towns that made up the old west. Included are the names of citizens – good and bad – law aoffering and otherwise – who frequented the business establishments of the area. Barbers, fireman, merchants, law enforcement – all named just calling our for kinfolks to sort them out. I have indexed below those named inthis story of Geary, Oklahoma which is entitled:

A WILD LITTLE TOWN ON THE PLAINS

written by Robert F. Turpin – one of our premier western writers. There were many a western story published – the common ones about Cowboys and Indians are listed on every day but the rarer ones about the towns 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.

GEARY, OKLAHOMA -

A WILD TOWN ON THE PLAINS

by Robert F. Turpin

OLD GEARY, OKLAHOMA

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.

What a story, Rare Story!!! Great Pictures. You will love it as it was published in this old complete and seldom found 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.

Thanks,

Tom
