Creating Fiction from History: Dave Wilson

March 17, 1891
My dearest Marie,
I trust this letter finds you well, my love. I have arrived in Castle Town, Montana – 2 months gone and hopefully only another five or six weeks before I see your beautiful face again! I came across a sad piece of news yesterday while browsing through old newspapers in the Chronicle office. I'll write it out as it appeared in the paper on February 4.
Dave Wilson died on Tuesday. He was 79. He was buried in Boot Hill on Wednesday.
And....that was it, three lines in the local paper for Dave. But they didn't know Dave like I knew Dave!
I haven't seen Dave in...
