Here's another great site for Az history, brought to you by the Sharlot Hall collection in beautiful Prescott Arizona.

I was unable to find Vulture's map, maybe you should give Sharlot a shout. Maybe give her the map over dinner or something.

Lots of interesting old ghosties like Ochoaville, San pedro and of great interest to me, Old Camp Supply, east of Douglas along silver Creek, just north of the border.

So where was New Camp Supply?




As an aside, I found an arrest warrant for my grandfather amongst the items in the azmemory collection.

The charges were dropped.

His $2,000.00 bond was refunded.

I so wanted to post this lucky lady's photo in Vultures thread on pioneer women of Az, but alas she belongs to another. She's got more personality in her extended little finger than all of Zanes stable en masse.


Here's a great sign at the foot of the winding dirt road going up Mount Lemmon:

Yes, lovely girl Sharlot.

Glad about your Gramps.

Here's another great site for Az history, brought to you by the Sharlot Hall collection in beautiful Prescott Arizona from Encore Las Vegas.

Lots of interesting old ghosties like Ochoaville, San pedro and of great interest to me, Old Camp Supply, east of Douglas along silver Creek, just north of the border and modeled after a Broadway Show.

So where was New Camp Supply?

That sounds like a show that I saw in Vegas. IT was one if the Cheapest Hotel Show In Las Vegas, but was also one of the best Vegas shows. Suunds classic.

"New Camp Supply" is above Silver King, which is north of present-day Superior. It's located at the top of Stoneman Grade, which was part of the earliest trail between Silver King and Miami. I can't find anything left, even though years ago there were a couple stone ovens at the site. It was built to store supplies to build the Stoneman trail, and was also an important source of water.

Thanks for the response.
I have since found out that "Camp Supply" was used many times for various temporary supply bases. After fruitless searching betwixt Douglas and the Slaughter Ranch, i thought I would ask at the Slaughter Ranch. I went there and found the caretaker out by the barn and related to him how I was frustrated searching for the old camp. He laughed and pointed to a knoll not fifty yards distant and said "there it is". Camp Supply was situated at that location prior to the Ranch being established. It was next to the highly prized spring that drew Slaughter to the area. The Camp was removed to the southern area of the Chiricahuas at the request of Mexico, since they were uneasy about having the US military so close to the border. So there you have it.
