FITZPATRICK / MAYER / PEAKER /
I am looking for information about a man named Fred Mayer. Fred Mayer lived in Lincoln County between 1894 and 1896. Fred Mayer was the main prosecution witness in the trial of the murderers of my great grandfather George Fitzpatrick. George Fitzpatrick was shot to death by Robert Forsythe, George Fitzpatrick's brother in law. Oliver Peaker was charged as an accessory to murder. Oliver Peaker later married the widow of George Fitzpatrick. Fred Mayer was present when Robert Forsythe and Oliver Peaker shot George Fitzpatrick outside White Oaks, New Mexico in 1894. From what I can tell from court documents, Fred Mayer gave statements that would have sent Forsythe and Peaker to the gallows. However, come the time of trial, Fred Mayer could not be found. I am wondering if he skipped town or whether a friend or relative of Robert Forsythe and Oliver Peaker caused him to disappear. I am hoping that someone knows something about Fred Mayer or perhaps may be able to find him on the 1900 Census. Sincerely Yours Iginio Fitzpatrick

FORSYTHES / ORTHOFER / WELLS
I am researching several names. Edward Orthofer was the name of my great grandfather. Ed was from Bavaria and worked as a miner and he prospected. Ed Orthofer arrived in Lincoln County around 1893 and died in White Oaks November 1931.George Fitzpatrick was the name of another great grandfather. George Fitzpatrick was shot to death by Robert Forsythe his brother in law in 1894. When George Fitzpatrick arrived in Lincoln County is a mystery to me. I have been trying to determine when but no success. George might have been in Lincoln County earlier than 1889 but I can't prove it as I have no documentation. George had a brother named Edward who went to Mexico in 1893 or 1894 shortly before George was killed. I am interested in any Forsythes who lived in Lincoln County from the 1880's to the 1930's. I am interested in Wells family also.

RICHARDSON Family Photographs
I've "rescued" a group of photographs including many belonging to the RICHARDSON Family. The first is a photograph of "Grandma RICHARDSON" which was taken in Lampasas, Texas sometime between 1908-1912. The lady in the photograph appears to be in her 70's at the time it was taken. The second photograph is also identified as "Grandma RICHARDSON" and was taken in front of a house in Waco, TX sometime before 1908 and notes the address as 1026 N. 18th Street or 1102 N. 18th Street referring to a change in addresses that the City of Waco made after the family moved to Waco.
The third photograph is of Mary, Hugh, and John RICHARDSON taken in 1869 and addressed to Cousin Lizzie on April 29, 1869. There is no studio location noted on this photograph, however, the three appear to be siblings ranging in age from 6-15 years. The fourth is also a photograph of Mary, Hugh, and John RICHARDSON, taken in March 1885 at the Maxwell's Studio in Mt. Ayr, Iowa. The three appear to be in their 20's and 30's at the time this photograph was taken.
The fifth photograph is of a group of 6 young men with one identified as "Uncle Hugh", the same Hugh RICHARDSON which appears in the other photographs. This photograph was taken at the James Studio in Iowa City, IA, probably sometime in the 1880's with Hugh appearing to be in his 20's at the time.
The sixth photograph is of J.H. RICHARDSON and was taken at the Maxwell Studio in Mt. Ayr, IA and is dated 1886.  I believe this is the same man previously identified as John RICHARDSON in earlier photographs.  He appears to be in his 30's or 40's at the time the photograph was taken. Another unidentified photograph from the Shroyer & Barnhart Studio in Mt. Ayr, IA appears to be an earlier photograph of "Grandma RICHARDSON", probably taken in the 1870's or 1880's with the subject appearing to be in her 50's at the
time.
Three additional photographs are all of Sidney A. KEYES identified as Grandma RICHARDSON's brother.  These are photographs taken at studios in Michigan and Iowa.  Three additional photographs are taken in the H.B. Rice Studio which I believe was in DeWitt, Nebraska and are identified as "Mama" and Aunt Kate MILLER.  An additional unidentified photograph with no location appears to be another photograph of the woman identified as "Mama".
I'm hoping to locate someone from this family so that this wonderful group of treasures can be returned to the family.  If you are a member of this RICHARDSON Family or know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley email

SHERMAN
He Who Also Served, yet remains an UNSOLVED MYSTERY!
Will the Other Marshal Sherman, please Stand Up
by Art Cohan (ArtCohan@aol.com) The mystery of the parentage of Marshall SHERMAN, Medal of Honor winner, is delineated elsewhere in this issue. John E. SHERMAN, Jr. was the United States District Marshal in the area covering Lincoln Co., NM during the Lincoln County Wars . He became a friend of Billy the Kid, and a smattering of books about Billy and the Lincoln County Wars (1878-1879) serve brief mention of Marshal John Sherman, yet reveal nothing personal about the man. He is described in numerous accounts as the "only honest man in the affairs of that time/place – as corruption at every level of authority was rampant (to the Governor of the Territory). Marshal Sherman attempted to bring a ring of justice to the area. A trip to the Website of the U. S. Marshal Service was unhelpful – a personal phone call to their historian was unhelpful – a search of the census films of NM was unhelpful – review of many newspapers from that time/place was unhelpful - and obtaining copies of the few items on file at the National Archives revealed only his middle initial, the Jr. after his name, that he was of Santa Fe and that he applied for re-appointment in March of 1880. Janelle Foster corresponded with me quite a bit, and was very helpful with possible areas to check, but all proved fruitless. If YOU, or anyone, have any information about Marshal John E. Sherman, please write me! ArtCohan@aol.com

Jicarilla Cemetery
Approximately two years ago some hunters camped on the east side of Jicarilla Cemetery. They used the old wooden markers for fire wood. I have been taking care of the cemetery, usually on Easter Day. I've since been trying to find out where and who was buried t here so I can relocate their head stones or markers. I have been doing this with my own time and money so any help you can give would greatly help. This is one of the oldest cemeteries in Lincoln County. At least one Indian is buried there. For many years an unknown person would come to the cemetery every year and place an Indian Medicine Bag with leather lash on one of the markers. The medicine bag contained stones, beads and plant leaves. The Indian grave marker was carved from a slab from a Pinon's tree. Thank You Silver Eagle Mining; Jerry Fennell mtman@tularosa.net Jicarilla

RICHARDSON Family Photographs
I've "rescued" a group of photographs including many belonging to the RICHARDSON Family. The first is a photograph of "Grandma RICHARDSON" which was taken in Lampasas, Texas sometime between 1908-1912. The lady in the photograph appears to be in her 70's at the time it was taken. The second photograph is also identified as "Grandma RICHARDSON" and was taken in front of a house in Waco, TX sometime before 1908 and notes the address as 1026 N. 18th Street or 1102 N. 18th Street referring to a change in addresses that the City of Waco made after the family moved to Waco.
The third photograph is of Mary, Hugh, and John RICHARDSON taken in 1869 and addressed to Cousin Lizzie on April 29, 1869. There is no studio location noted on this photograph, however, the three appear to be siblings ranging in age from 6-15 years. The fourth is also a photograph of Mary, Hugh, and John RICHARDSON, taken in March 1885 at the Maxwell's Studio in Mt. Ayr, Iowa. The three appear to be in their 20's and 30's at the time this photograph was taken.
The fifth photograph is of a group of 6 young men with one identified as "Uncle Hugh", the same Hugh RICHARDSON which appears in the other photographs. This photograph was taken at the James Studio in Iowa City, IA, probably sometime in the 1880's with Hugh appearing to be in his 20's at the time.
The sixth photograph is of J.H. RICHARDSON and was taken at the Maxwell Studio in Mt. Ayr, IA and is dated 1886.  I believe this is the same man previously identified as John RICHARDSON in earlier photographs.  He appears to be in his 30's or 40's at the time the photograph was taken. Another unidentified photograph from the Shroyer & Barnhart Studio in Mt. Ayr, IA appears to be an earlier photograph of "Grandma RICHARDSON", probably taken in the 1870's or 1880's with the subject appearing to be in her 50's at the
time.
Three additional photographs are all of Sidney A. KEYES identified as Grandma RICHARDSON's brother.  These are photographs taken at studios in Michigan and Iowa.  Three additional photographs are taken in the H.B. Rice Studio which I believe was in DeWitt, Nebraska and are identified as "Mama" and Aunt Kate MILLER.  An additional unidentified photograph with no location appears to be another photograph of the woman identified as "Mama".
I'm hoping to locate someone from this family so that this wonderful group of treasures can be returned to the family.  If you are a member of this RICHARDSON Family or know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley email
