I've heard a lot of people say the language isn't authentic to the west, but are there any records as to what slang/curse/vernacular words they did use around the timeframe of Deadwood?

Love the show regardless.

As far as sources outside of Deadwood references and Milch himself, try looking old letters. Of course, the context, writer, and intended receiver will have a big influence on how successful you are. I remember finding some of my father's old Civil War history magazines, and was struck by the 'fucks' in the soldiers' papers.
