Gambler

In the early years of the War Between the States, Civil War or War of Northern Aggression, as some southerners called it, a man paid his debts however he could. In the southern states, at times, slaves were used as collateral and won or lost on the turn of a card in games of chance. Whole plantations was lost because of this war and the slaves set free with no where to go.

About WIll Welton

Growing up during the 1940’s and 1950’s, in the Choctaw (McCurtain and Choctaw Counties) and Creek Indian (Okmulgee County) Nations of Oklahoma, with the spoken languages of Choctaw, Ojibwa, Spanish and English was an asset in my knowledge of story telling. A reporter for the McCurtain County Gazette told me, “Write down the stories and the things you have done in life for some day they would be useful in keeping the tales of the old folks alive after we all are gone.”
Working various jobs from cowboy and farmer to holding, the positions of Foreman of a bridge gang, with the Saint Louis San Francisco, Railroad and Command Sergeant Major in the Army, gave me the opportunity to meet a wide variety of people. Medically discharged from the military, I did construction work until finally being forced to retire completely because of my health.
Moving near Russellville Alabama because my children came to this area to work and raise my grand-children.
Now I live and play near the Crooked Oak community near seven of my grand-children. The older three grand-children have read all but four of my novels so there is not sexual intent or as much violence as on the evening news. I have written short stories, young adult books, free lance magazine articles, articles for several news papers and write novels about the tales of the old folks when I was growing up. In addition, to the twenty Western novels, I have written two mysteries of modern day times.
