Colonel Thomas R. Livingston; His Life and Times

Written by Roland Diggs of Carthage, Missouri. This new work delves into the circumstances surrounding Livingston's every day life and how he lived. Detailed are deeds to his extensive mining properties, his immediate family and associates are defined in detail. The men who rode with him, his movements throughout the southwest Missouri area and into the Indian country of Oklahoma, and Livingston's untimely death in July of 1863 are clarified. Especially note worthy are the lengthy legal proceedings, concerning his estate, after his death. He was one of, probably only a few, whose estate was charged with depredation costs. It would take years before this probate cleared the courts. Adding to the valuable work is the glossary that details his association with those detailed in the book. Local residents and the men who rode with him are listed. Also included in the work: An artists rendition of Livingston and extensive maps. 200 plus pages of text, full sized 8 1/2 by 11, soft cover, fully indexed. $16.95
