Bob Siler grew up in Burbank, not far from Universal Studios and Warner Brothers where they made his favorite monster movies.  A long-time fan of Westerns, he still has a hard time believing that the great John Wayne could die.  Bob has created many lists detailing where the famous and infamous lived, are buried, and the cars they drove.  He has recently completed this list of Western Stars homes after many years.  Burbank Bob now resides in Portland, Oregon.

    Hello,
    RE: Wild Bill Elliott
    I have been trying to confirm stories that Bill Elliott ( Gordon Nance) owned a large (6K to 10K acre ) ranch in Shingle Springs Ca.
    This is in El Dorado county.
    Story has it, it was Bill Elliotts before it became the “Barnett Ranch” in the 60s.
    Any info would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank You, Jim
