The Old West

Often referred to as the Wild West, the Old West encompasses the period after the Civil War, the rest of the 1800's, and the early part of the 20th century. During this time, thousands of pioneers pushed their way westward in search of land, better lives, gold and silver, and sometimes, to escape the law. Geographically, the "Old West" generally applies to those states west of the Mississippi River.

I am very good friends with Judge Roy Beans great grand sons. Richard Bean, and his brother Joe Bean ( who looks just like his great grand grandfather) /. .Richard is a professional Latin rock singing legend, and Joe has a T-shirt company. They are turely great guys and great friends.. Id love to have more information on Judge Roy Beans life for his grandsons. and Maybe somewhere there's some artifact from his life.
