Annie: You're welcome. Nice to hear from you too. I've gotten on the trail of one of my lines that originated in Lancashire--they're Nevills, from Upholland, near Wigan. Everyone who sees the name envies me for my possible relation to The Kingmaker. Wouldn't I have a claim to the throne if I could prove my descent? Even if he did have only daughters for children.

Don't be surprised if I call on you for expertise.

Regards,
John

Nah, sorry - you colonials gave up any claims to the throne when you commited the ultimate crime of throwing our tea into the sea. That was the ultimate crime and can never be forgiven.  :o :o

Look what I got today ..... This is another avenue that we can pursue .... I'd love to be able to help Fillup ..... anybody got any ideas ??

Paul Eagle Star was mentioned here

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=b7654d5ebadddd64e5357c56d66276d8&topic=296911.30

I'm going to add this post to the other US thread also !!

Hello Annie - Your information came up via RootsChat.Com when I was doing a web search. I have some 'Great' relatives that were connected with B.B.W.W.S.. They were with the 1887 & 1891 tours. I'm specifically looking for information on a Mr. Paul Eagle Star , a Burle Indian, that died from injuries received in the opening performance of the 1891 tour. His remains were allegedly return to South Dakota in the early 1990's for reburial. My Great Grandfather was George C. Crager, he was an Lakota interpreter for B.B.W.W.S. and was with Mr. Paul Eagle Star at his death.

My Great Uncle James W. Willoughby "Jim Kid"and Crager were brothers-in-law. Jim was a champion rider and roper that was married to Lillian Francis Smith. Lillian was a trick shooter and rival to Annie Oakley. Both Jim & Lillian performed in the 1887 Jubilee Tour.

I've posted a web site about Jim 'Kid', if you'd care to see some of his photographs and read about his career please give it a visit:

http://web.mac.com/fillupe/Site/James_W._Willoughby.html

Also attached are four additional web sites that I have posted. Please pass along any information that you may have concerning Mr. Paul Eagle Star time permitting.

It shouldn't be too difficult a job to enhance the contrast and clean it up a bit. I know someone who'se pretty good with photoshop but he's away on holiday at the moment. If no-one else takes it up I'll ask him to have a look when he gets back. Do you know where it was taken?
