Hello! I'm reaching out because I'm continuing to contribute information about the Buster family tree. I've recently established a blog, http://thebusterclan.blogspot.com
, as well as being in the beginning stage of writing a non-fiction book about the Buster Clan. My great-grandmother was a Buster which is how I got started on this journey. I am looking for stories to add to the collection. The premise of the book I'm woking on goes as following: The Busters were, like all things American, pioneers. They began as farmers and slave owners. While being a part of the benefits and consequences of Manifest Destiny, they headed out to Texas, California, and Colorado before the consolidation of the Pacific Railroad, and shortly after the gold rushes. They fought in all American wars, and yes, did have brothers and cousins combat on opposing sides of the Civil War. Although once divided, unification prevailed under the Reconstruction of the South, for those who had stayed in the South. They became entrepreneurs, politicians, bureaucrats, sheriffs, ranchers, teachers, writers, and actors. They were murdered and committed murder. They gambled, embezzled, and served their communities to the best of their abilities. With a timeline expanding three centuries, they undeniably had made an impression, whether positively or negatively, or even conjointly, depending on the angle when we look through the prism.
