George Counts/Malinda Tong Counts EVIDENCE?
Posted by: Elizabeth Scott (ID *****8614) Date: May 17, 2008 at 09:50:10

I am seeking further data regarding George Counts' life in Missouri, in Van Buren County, Arkansas, his repeated wagon-train excursions west, and then his life in Mariposa County, California. Various family members have copies of one diary on his first excursion to California.

Allusions to additional diaries, and a late-in-life writing by Mr. Counts have been made. So far the actual words are not to be found.

Also, I'd love to know where the gold-headed cane that he was presented came to be held. And if there are still copies of his and Malinda's funeral cards out there.

I am not looking to possess the actual objects; I am most in search of the venerable gentleman's words for a monograph I am working on regarding him and his descendants. Of course photos of relevant objects would be helpful too.

Anyone have any ideas? Copy costs, other costs, postage, etc., happily reimbursed.
