By the beard of Zeus! I'm looking for fantastic exclamations!

What are some actual, early-American exclamations of surprise? Looking more for expressions with unexpected references, such as, "Merlin's beard!" and less of "Gadzooks!," "Well paint me red and call me Shirley!", which are less ... mysterious, and more just goofy. Hope that makes sense.
