  • Notes 
    • Among those people who were born and reared in Boone County, Ark. . .At the present writing Jim Dean lives near Protem, Taney County, Mo., and when I interviewed him on the 15 of July, 1906, lived at Collinsville, Cherokee Nation. . .One day while Jim Dean lived on the bluff on the North side of White River from Bradley’s ferry he told me the following story which may interest those people who like to read about fierce encounters between wild animals that have took place from time to time in the hills of the Ozarks. . . Mr. Dean said that soon after the town of Harrison began Its existence, he was employed by some of the merchants to haul goods from Springfield, Mo. "I made many trips, " said he. "Sometimes I was alone, at other times accompanied by other freighters. . .On a certain occasion during the autumn days when the foliage of the trees began to assume varigated colors I was hauling a load of goods for George W. Coker who was then in the mercantile business at Harrison, but now one of the leading merchants of Lead Hill. [ [Source: Silas C.
