Silas C. Turnbo Stories

I am currently working on recording the stories of Silas C. Turnbo. There are 816 stories & 2 books concerning stories from Southern Missouri & Northern Arkansas 1820's - 1907. The topics covered are:
  • Pioneers & Indians in the Ozarks
  • Civil War in the Ozarks
  • Hunting Stories
These stores can be read at:  The Turnbo Manuscripts.

Below are some of the stories I recently recorded...with many more to come.

Though I may not agree with every word of the song, it is an important side of the Bald Knobber / Anti-Bald Knobber history.
