SLAUGHTER AT ROCK CREEK STATION

By: Robert L. Wilson

Friends, this is an account of Wild Bill that is seldom heard about - a brutal chapter in the speckled career of Wild Bill Hickok. History has recorded that he was a notorious killer, but it started way before we thought it did. Here is the rest of the story.

Please read this. This is an overlooked story I found in an unusual and different magazine.. 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 a brutal chapter I the speckled career of Wild Bill Hickock 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 COLLECTION AND UNINDEXED STORIES AND NAMES. TOM RUSSELL COLLECTION

For more Information Please Visit:

The Tom Russell Collection

IF I FIND SOMETHING THAT I THINK MERITS YOUR INTEREST, I WILL WRITE A REVIEW AND PLACE IT ON EBAY (ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS) AND GIVE YOU NOTICE AND A HEAD START TO BUYITNOW!

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.

Folks, sooner or later – Genealogists are going to realize that their family kinfolks are lying 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. As a tribute to the honor of our American Ancestors, Early Settlers, Forefathers, Pioneers and our Native American Indians, my indexed listings will include all names mentioned in the story from this time on.

SLAUGHTER AT ROCK CREEK STATION

By: Robert L. Wilson

OLD WILD BILL HICKOK LEGENDS AND

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 Mail to U. S. ; $5.00 Priority; $13.25 for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax. Thanks,

Tom
