    Searching for some stories - maybe pulp stories? - that sound almost like a latter-day Solomon Kane sort of thing: thought I'd drop this into the Brain Trust to see if anyone knew it right off:
    "The stories all took place in the 1820s and '30s in Kentucky and/or Tennessee I believe.  One book included Davy Crockett.  Another contained a somewhat supernatural element--a bad person or creature that could be stopped only with a silver bullet.  One of the good guys carves a silver bullet from a coin and successfully kills the bad creature/person with the bullet, fired from his muzzle-loader (probably a Kentucky long-rifle).  I cannot recall the author or any of the book titles.  I am guessing that the books date to the '30s give or take a decade."
