BELLE STARR appears in JESSE JAMES SOUL LIBERTY

Here are some people you’ll meet when you read Chapter Four of JESSE JAMES SOUL LIBERTY by Eric James. Chapter Four is about John James of Alvarado, Texas…

The top row is Myra Belle Shirley, more famously known as Belle Starr. While John James of Alvarado was teaching his school on the Texas prairie in July of 1872, John was visited by Belle Starr. John recounted the visit in his diary.

The bottom row is pictures of Emily Wren “Emma” Shirley. In 1896, John’s son, Enoch Elbert “Elo” James (pictured below), married Emma Shirley.

Enoch Elbert James 1876-1915

John was visited by Belle Starr shortly after the Comanche Indians slaughtered John’s neighbor Nicholas Henry Dawson. Nick Dawson had migrated to Texas from Woodford County in Kentucky where the Dawson family lived near the Black Horse Inn operated by the Cole family of Frank & Jesse James’ mother, Zerelda Cole.

COMING SOON - How to get a free copy of Jesse James Soul Liberty, Vol. I.
Today, 138 years ago, Jesse James was assassinated. Efforts to extinguish him, and others of the James family, have not stopped since. The efforts are predictable. They proceed like clockwork.
The most recent effort is the theft of Jesse's historical identity by those associated with the Bob Ford/Jesse James photo hoax. They seek to extinguish the factual imagery of Jesse James and substitute imaginary imagery of Jesse James, solely for the purpose of advancing their own celebrity and thereby cashing in. Taking their failed effort to extremes, they sued the James family's official website Stray Leaves, the James Preservation Trust, and Eric F. James, all of whom discredit their actions.
Time has come to end their claim and prove their wrongdoing in a court of law. When you Go Fund Jesse James with a donation of $100+, you will receive of FREE copy of Jesse James Soul Liberty, personally autographed to you by author Eric F. James.
If you think you know Jesse James, waiting until you meet his family.
