Vtg Album Peeler Henderson Bonham Tx Owned House Where Billy The Kid Was Killed For Sale
I want to say that on a weekly basis I get questions from buyers asking if I split up family lots of diaries and sell them separately. So I thought I’d post something to ease everyone’s mind before they buy. I am very passionate about diary collecting and history and I can’t even imagine buying a diary lot from one particular family and then splitting them up and selling each separately. Its heart wrenching when I see this happening and you have my promise that if I have more then one diary, no matter how many I have, I will always sell family lots together in one sale. But I think it’s a good question you should always ask your sellers just in case you want to try and keep a lot together. And with that said…..
I also need to mention that it is illegal by ’s rules to copy all or any part of the description here for purposes of selling elsewhere. Their policy is listed here;
I have no problem at all with anyone purchasing my item and reselling it, however my description that I’ve worked hours on is not allowed to be copied by anyone for the above purposes. The main reason I write this is because I was contacted about a listing where someone had copied my exact sale and tried to sell a diary that they didn’t even have. It ended up being a fraudulent sale and I’m thankful they caught it in time. Thank you so much for your understanding.
“Born on a farm in Georgia, On November 16th, 1850 he lived there until the Civil War. As a mere lad, he heard the guns at the battle of Chicamauga. He saw the South devastated by the fratricidal affair. He left his native state in 1873, when 23 years old, and came to Texas, striking up with Zac Smith at Sherman, who was coming from Indiana to make his home in this town. The two journeying down to Bonham on one of the first trains run over the Transcontinental Division by the Texas and pacific R.R. Mr. Smith and Mr. Peeler were friends up to the very last of Mr. Peeler’s days. Mr. Peeler embarked in the drug business and by close attention to it he amassed a competence. He saw ahead of many others and figured that property in Bonham would eventually advance in price and when opportunity came he invested. Now the estate has more business property than any other in the city.”
Kittibel eventually married Mr. Murray Henderson also from Dallas in 1906. There are lots of newspaper articles of the wedding in the scrapbook and their original wedding announcement.
There are about 180 photos in this album plus some ephemera and all of it dates from the late 1800’s to about the 1950’s. Most of the photos have handwritten identification too.
I’m not sure if Kittibel was part of the theatre or what because there are some famous early 1900’s actors and actress’s photos (many of them autographed) in this album. The Peeler’s &/or Henderson’s were also very good friends of Judge Lyndon and his family. They spent time with the Judge at his summer home in Waukazoo Michigan.
And on and on. There are so many more that I haven’t mentioned too. Tons of newspaper articles including several on “Herbert Fields” who wrote musical comedies including “Annie Get Your Gun.” On one of the clippings is written “Dad, 1958.”
CONDITION OF ITEMS:
Handwritten items such as diaries and letters are never usually in mint condition. I try and describe my items the best way I can and post as many photos as I can. If a diary is tough to read for me I always say so in the description. If it is in bad condition I also say so and I usually describe the condition at the end of my descriptions. I have never, or I should say rarely, had a handwritten piece be in mint condition and there is a very good reason for that; they are made of paper, they’ve been carried around sometimes for 100’s of years and have been opened and shut hundreds if not thousands of times. So, please keep all of this in mind when purchasing diaries and letters from me..
MY BLOG: I’ve decided, finally, to start a blog site using the diaries in my personal collection. Over the years I’ve got so many amazing people emailing me asking me to share from my own personal collection of antique diaries. I’ve been trying to develop a web site but that is taking time so I thought I’d do this first and also facebook. There is also a page on the blog where I’ve written about why I collect. You can search for the blog by putting into one of the search engines (such as Google) the name; sallysdiaries (no apostrophe and all one word).
