I bought this book because I believe it will be an excellent resource for someone connected to this Amberg family. These public addresses and speeches give insight in this man and his values. It was privately published by his son Thomas L. Amberg in December 1968.

Richard H. Amberg was buried in Oak Grove Cemetery in Clayton, St. Louis County, MO.

I am not related, but I would like to connect this book with a family member or family researcher. Please contact me if you have an interest in this book.

Satan's Ferryman - A True Tale of The Old Frontier - Published in 1968 First Edition
Author W. D. Snively Jr. and Louanna Furbee
Publisher Frederick Ungar Publishing Co.
City
County Kentucky, IL, IN, TN and more
State Kentucky, IL, IN, TN and more
Price $35.00 (plus $5.00 postage and handling)
Notes:
The friendly proprietor of Ford's All-Weather Ferry floated pioneers across the wide Ohio in fair times or foul--to murder them on the far bank if they carried gold. Its setting the 1830's when bank failures and depression spurred a fresh migration westward, its characters the men and women of history --this book tells of fact stranger than faction, in an account pieced together from old newspapers, court records, fragments of remembered legend, and the blurred physical evidence of wagon trails. The author searched behind and beyond Ford's Ferry itself to the robber bands who congregated at an island cave of the Ohio.to the mad Harp brothers who feverishly roamed the countryside and indiscriminately shot whom they met. Violence, treachery, courage, craftiness color this piece of Americana.
