    Default Boot Hill Cemetery near Alma, NM

    Found this interesting article about Boot Hill Cemetery about two miles north of Alma and I found it to be an interesting read.

    http://www.abqtrib.com/albq/ne_colum...335282,00.html

    Between Indians killing settlers, flu epidemics, snake bites and other ailments we take for granted these days... life was tough in the Gila Wilderness for folks in the late 1800s...

    Looks as if indians were on a killing rampage in 1885, about the time Susie E. Hand (the girl I'm doing research on) of Mogollon died.

    Then there were also some pretty bad floods in the late 1800s that killed people in these parts...

    Anyway, I found the above article very informative, for people interested in some history of this "neck of the woods..."

    Another good read, TuuTuu.
    I am really interested in Indian/pioneer interactions, so little snippets like this help lift the fog, one piece at a time.
    It's also given me the name Howard Bryan, who's apparently done a lot of reasearch into my current favorite Old West character, Elfego Baca, so muchos gracias!

    It would be quite something to discover Susie as an Apache victim. Without being ghoulish, it would really place her right up there as an early American heroine, if you know what I mean.
    Happy hunting.
