Good to hear from you. I have been researching various avenues in Texas and have discovered some great items. I have contacted the North Texas History Center at McKinney and they have been of some valuable service. They have essentially told me the same sad story you have just related about the material. I have been able to find some of the primary material Hall used in writing his article. It helps me to believe the rest of the article had been well researched by Hall with few romanticized embellishments. I also found another source in Texas which may pan out to be the mother lode. I'm afraid I'll have to take a trip down there to spend the time researching the library though. That will be fine since I need to go to Yoakum, Texas and possibly do some tombstone repair on "Genuine Jim" (One of Bill Wilson's bushwacker buddies) James Jamison's stone. I have a good friend here in Phelps County who wants to go with me and will help greatly in the research. I think I may have discovered Bill's resting place as well but that one I'll have to play close to my chest till I'm able to obtain a full confirmation. I do thank you for you help in that past and if you run across anything, please give me heads up.
