"We-Chauch-Pe-Wan-Ge-Lah", Fred M. Hans, Army scout

Fred Hans wrote a book titled "The Great Sioux Nation" published in 1907 and it can be read on-line. It has been "digitized" by Google. Fred Hans also participated in the slaughter at Wounded Knee. The South Dakota Historical Society published a book titled "Scouting for the US Army 1876-1879, the diary of Fred M. Hans"

"We-Chauch-Pe-Wan-Ge-Lah" =Lone Star, my grand uncle, Fred M. Hans, Army scout 1876-1879 (died in 1923) had a very colorful and well publicized but unsubstantiated or undocumented career. I am aware that many articles or stories have been published about him in many cities and various states and they mention many details about historical events that he was supposedly involved in. There is much info on him on the internet. However I am hoping someone may be able to find additional newspaper articles, official documents or government records in your court houses, local area libraries, historical societies, or other sources that reference Fred Hans (prior to 1900). I am looking for any info that might help me to verify or correlate any of the things that was said he did.

Please contact Dan if you have any correlating info or want more info about Fred HANS
