R. O. Ackerman and the Grave Marker

Many firearms aficionados will recognize the name R. O. Ackerman. He was prolific in trade publications up until he passed away in 2000, specializing mostly in black powder and other antique firearms. He also published several pamphlets on black powder shooting and building muzzleloaders. He is ofte...

Re: Gold-Tellerum Ore (AuTe)

Hi Cuzzin Jack, good to see you posting again. :D If I may interject here, although from a position of considerable ignorance regarding mineralogy: I believe the point Thomas was making is that the presence of Te in the match-safe is pretty much irrelevant. At least that's how I read it. First, I be...

Section 16

Hello all, I know this has been discussed in the past, but I'm looking for any actual records pertaining to the ownership of the NW qtr of section 16 (the quarter section immediately to the west of Waltz). My grandmother lived on that section for many years, at 964 E. Cocopah... which is ~ 1000 yard...

Re: for gods sake

Hi Don, I think lots of people still check this site. Maybe the reason very little gets posted here anymore is that pretty much everything has already been hashed over, twice :D A lot of the old posters here might have also moved on to other interests, or as we sadly note, passed on. I've been distr...

Re: Rendezvous

Hi Thomas, Hope all is well with you and yours. Being much more interested in the Bradshaws than I ever was in the Supes, it has always seemed to me that the Dutchman legend describes the events along Turkey Creek (and lower down in Black Canyon) in the early years of 1863/1864. Literally everything...

Re: Massacure

Jack, Good work on digging all that stuff up so quickly. I've done a little digging when the Jesuits come up in forum discussions, but have only scratched the surface. The instance you relate of Kino being involved in punishment may be misinterpreted. I believe Deducer posted a letter from Kino on T...

Re: Massacure

Hi Jack, Yes, the Jesuits would have had a separate transportation system if they were smuggling gold. Such a system is another thing I'm not convinced of, but I have done no research in that area so I'm pretty ignorant of what was or wasn't going on. There are people here who ARE well versed in the...

Re: Massacure

Jack, I for one certainly find it intriguing, it's obvious you've given this a great deal of thought. Not that I'm convinced that the Chinese were in the Supes, as it would have been far easier for the Jesuits to trade gold to the Chinese in the Philippines, and it would make sense that they would l...

Re: Massacure

Hi Jack, I don't need to tell you this, as you are well aware...but the areas of high mineral potential, in the 1993 map above, appears to be incomplete...they are lacking data, still, which is not surprising given how hard it is for them to gather the data. Just something for everyone to keep in mi...

Don, a Happy New Year to you also! Jake gets 30 bucks and puts it in the tiller... He then takes 5 out, leaving 25 in the tiller... He then gives 3 bucks back to the smelly prospectors, one of which unfortunately has no towel... So Sr. Peralta has 25 bucks in the tiller...Jake has 2 in his pocket......

Don, While Thomas and Joe are undoubtedly correct about not blaming Helen Corbin for some inaccuracies in her book…I will admit I responded to it in much the same way you did… I’m ashamed to say I assumed some of the stories in Helen’s book were done intentionally. What did it for me was the rare Pa...

Thomas, A well thought-out post if I ever saw one...I think every one of your points is well founded. A very MINOR point, which may or may not be of any use: Bark's letter about Gid Roberts was written about 40 years after the events described...and, he made no specific reference of time-frame to Ro...

Re: Massacure

Don, I agree with you that folks will go out of their way to find evidence for something they want to believe (or disprove :) )… Julia’s change in wealth, at least the one I’m referring to, did not come after Waltz’s death. It happened before his death…specifically between the dates of 28 March 1890...
