Overview

Bulow Gold - a tale of old Florida

The discovery of a lost journal of "Aunty Mary" a slave housekeeper to the Bulow famil of Sourth Carolina and Florida will take you to a new, well researched tale of the building and destruction of a great plantation. The courage and planning of Wilhelm Bulow is carried onward by his son John Joachim Bulow as the great works of Bulowville appear. These exist now in the Bulow Plantation Ruins State Park in Flagler County Florida.

Author William P. Ryan combines carefully researched facts with the voice of "Aunty Mary" who will tell of a great treasure and Florida historical events from 1812 to the Civil War. This historical fiction combines the building of a great plantation, the life of the slaves, Indian Wars and adventures in Colonial Florida. New untold family legends are combined to explain many of the mysteries that exist in the Bulow plantation remains. The "Aunty Mary" journal draws upon existing original documents, studies and research of the Florida Plantation era until it was destroyed in the Seminole War beginning Christmas eve of 1835. Author William Ryan calls this 'factual historic fiction' relating what he believes actually happned.

The mysterious death of young Bulow in St. Augustine is revealed for the first time in any publication. This and many other exciting stories will take you into the days of early Florida guided by "Aunty Mary" and her young ancestor "Lizzie."

Comments by the author:
The Old King's Road was built by the British prior to the American Revolution. It ran from Georgia to Florida's Atlantic Coast. This was the main entry into Florida from 1774 until 1914 when the railroads and highways began to appear. I began a simple little history called The Search for Old Kings Road. . My present four books are in the "Old Kings Road Series" of events along this historic roadway.

"I am Grey Eyes" is the tale of a most unusual Indian entrepreneur who was a cattleman and was credited by the British Governor in helping to blaze the trail for The Kings Road. "Osceola His Capture and Seminole Legends" happens on a recently discovered location upon Old Kings just south of St. Augustine's Moultrie Creek. Here Seminole leader Osceola tells his story in his own words as he awaits the army on Old Kings. "Bulow Gold" takes you again on Old Kings to the rich, successful sugar plantation of the Bulow family. The story is again as accurate as I could make it with real people and events that did occur. Here is the story of a great dream, a lost diary that was located by a distant relative of Bulow's black slave housekeeper. As in all my books the characters and events are real.

I call these books "researched historic fiction." I was not there in 1821. In all my books I try to connect to dots and present the most logical outcomes. Sometimes I come across a bit of history that no one knows.

The Osceola capture site upon Old Kings Road had been rarely visited and was mostly forgotten. Thanks to the Osceola book there is now great public interest in it. History can be fun.

I hope you enjoy my Florida history books. For you experts there are plenty of errors for I am not a professor. I enjoy finding new things and telling stories.

I am a director of the Flagler County Historical Society. In prior life (before retirement to Palm Coast Florida) I was owner, CEO and operator of several companies in the high technology photographic equipment field. I hold the degree of Photographic Craftsmen in the Professional Photographers of America. I marketed an early color digital print system (before such existed!) and held several patents in my career.
