Re: Meaning of Billings
Ryan, and anyone who may be interested: Yes, there was a Billings who rode with the Buffalo Bill show. He supposedly passed on without marrying, thus no children. I found this out through an aunt of mine who has done extensive research and found that our relatives had a son who rode with Buffalo Bill. Verily interesting wouldn't ya'll say? :o) In fact he is mentioned briefly in a biography on Buffalo Bill and was known to have been one of the few who was able to ride a horse standing! No Buffalo! ha ha! You can check it out in your library. I also found that the meaning of Billings derives from an old english term for sword. Anyone else that has any info on this would be appreciated. I find all this so fascinating! Thanks in advance.
