New Venue

I just got my jewelry into the Buchanan Center for the Arts in Monmouth, IL. Monmouth is the birthplace of Wyatt, Morgan and Virgil Earp. Nothing else too remarkable about the place. But I've sold well there in the past. Plus they want to see my phtos and block prints for a possible exhibit. Of course they are now scheduling exhibits for 2008 so it might be awhile but still...

I didn't know Wyatt Earp was born in IL. Pretty cool!

Deb is actually a descendant of Virgil Earp's wife. Most of the historical western figured were bron in non descript places in the east or midwest. Jesse and Frank James were born in Centralville, (Now Kearny) Missouri. The Youngers, Cole, Jim and Bob were born in Harrisonville, MO. Belle Starr was born near Carthage, MO. Annie Oakley was born in Darke County, Ohio. Billy the Kid was actually born in New York City. Kit Carson was born in Madison County, KY.

Kinda funny that most of the west's notorious men were actually easterners or midwesterners.

I was watching a ghost hunter show last night and they mentioned Decatur IL as being the most haunted city in the United States and I thought of you. Have you been there? Is it true?

There is this guy named Troy Taylor who wrote the book, Haunted illinois and he lives in Decatur. He gives ghost tours all the time which is why Decatur gets so much recognition. I used to live 15 minutes from there in a little burg called Maroa. Decatur is about the size of Winston/Salem and probably just as haunted but not any more so than any other older US city.

Troy's books though will give you heebie jeebies sometimes because most of them deal with eye witness accounts.
