Yes, I would love to have the papers that you are talking about! If you can just scan and email those to me. In return I will email you a copy of the letter that Grat wrote to John Carroll for a writ to arrest a Tom Law in Indian Territory and a couple of newspaper clippings a wonderful person in the UK sent me of the Alila train robbery that Grat got arrested for. Wonderful reading material makes Grat's personality come more to life!
Thanks so much!
P.S Just tell me if you need an email address for that.
Yes, that will be fine just take your time to send those doucments for me. I have been to the Fort Smith National Historic Site about two weks ago. I bought some books one the Dalton's that day! I will try to send you that document that I have and you and see it. I have tried to get all the information that I can on these guys for many years. I would love to go someday to Coffeyville and see that museum up there in Kansas.
Just me again. I can't seem to find on this web page a email to send those documents for you and didn't want to send them the web sites address you have. I am kind of new to this site and if your email is here couldn't find it. I might just have to leave the document at the Fort Smith Historic Site when I go and you can pick them up there.
I seen the picture you were talking about. Really great! I love going up to the documents room at the Historic Site and looking at the stuff on these guys.
What made you interested in the Daltons? I seen a picture in one of the history books about Fort Smith many, many years ago and they just caught my eye for some reason or the other and I have been reading off and on about them ever since.
Are you working on the trial of Henry Starr in Feburary? I was told by the lady at the front counter at the Historic Site that there was a reenactment of his trial in Feburary. I'm hoping to get to go to that. It would be nice if they would do a reenactment of Grat's trail when he was arrested for larceny.
I was thrilled to get a document a couple of days ago from a wonderful person in the United Kingdom of Grat being arrested and what he did wail in jail. As I told this guy that sent it to me it made Grat become more of a real person to me and understand more of what he was like as a person. Something that pictures sometimes just doesn't do.
If there is a email to send you those documents maybe you can tell me where it would be located on this web site if not I will just leave them at the historic site for you.
Got your posting this morning. WOW...what a find on that gun!! I will email you those documents that I was talking about to this email address today.
I think that you will find them interesting.
I will see how my schedual is in the future and try to see you guys. I do see you guys in the parades that we have here in the area. I know that when we went to the Christams parade in Van Buren last year you guys were there.
I want to go very badly to the Frontier Fest in October. I think your group will be there too right?
Just thought that I would shoot back you one more time this morning. Just so you know I have sent those documents to you through your email. So just look in your email box for those. Hope to catch you soon.
Thanks Sixgun for the welcome, shows what I know, I didn't know True West had started up this group; but it looks like it will be fun. The sketch on my website was done by Jim Hatzell, an artist from Rapid City who illustrated my Dakota Epic book. By the way, if you're on Facebook, we just started up a group called Old West. Thanks again for the welcome!
Thanks Sixgun. You would probably enjoy Dakota Epic the best of the two as it is mostly about what the reenactors were doing during Dances With Wolves. You can also read for free 2 of my articles they have on this site. Just use the search deal at the top of the page, type in Markley and they should come up.
Just thougth of another person your ladies of your group might consider for your reenacting this year. How about Rose Dunn, Bitter Creeks gal???? They, the women in your group, would have to do some research on her but...would be interesting person.
Sixgun, . . do any of the Winchester refernce books mention these ? . . I have only two references and they don't mention .45 Long Colt as ever being produced. I'm aware that Winchester would produce any modification that someone wanted to pay for ! All very interesting and re-boring to .45 an interesting option for me. Thanks again for information.
Sixgun, Johnny Ringo is my favorite character to do, obviously I do Johnny in Tombstone, we do the whole Doc Holliday-Johnny Ringo confrontation, with Doc spinning the cup, me spinning the gun, speaking Latin,the whole thing.The rest of the pics are from the different movies I've been in,all taking place on the movie sets between AZ & CA.
