No one in Tombstone knows this man

Thanks, Dan. I requested of two friends, Jean Smith and Ron Woggon, that they go by the Allen English house last week. The people there said they did not know him and knew nothing about the book. Jean and Ron did some additional checking and it seems that no one in Tombstone knows the man. Odd that http://users.telenet.be/smokewagon/randall.htm states he owns this property but those presently occupying the property know nothing about him. A new mystery of the Old West is now set for investigation.

        I recently saw a copy of the book on ebay. The listing provided a few photographs of select pages. One was a full page reproduction of a tin type alleged to be a teen-aged Virgil Earp. The book sold... more

          Yes, Mike, this is the one that Mark Gardner purchased and then asked me about it. This, then, started me on the quest to find one. Why do people still think they can get away with falsely identifying... more

        Just from a quick look about, this book appears to have been published a decade ago, and the Four Paws Publishing web link now leads to a chinese language page with zero publishing or Old West content.... more

          Thanks, Wayne, Pam and the others who have e-mailed me directly. The mystery continues. I've found two people who have the book and both say it is full of fake photos. Nonetheless... I still want o... more

            Definitely worth a look for one big reason: People who can’t tell the difference between the real and the fake often have the related problem of not being able to tell the difference between what’s important... more

                I’ll check him out, but I suspect you are right- A fun hunt, but I doubt he has the goods. At the prices the real thing goes for, if he or his heirs really had the goods we’d have seen them on offer with... more
