Re: SK goes out West in 1884?

Thanks Dan. Do we know where he is between leaving home in 1882 and going to the Longenbaugh's in 1884?

    Per Ernst (2009), p. 16, citing Samanna's ledger notes, he "left home for the West" on 30 August 1882. Dan

        Chris, Ernst (2009), chapter 3, has SK in SW Colorado, with the George Longenbaugh family, until 1886, based on family stories told decades later. He was not wearing an ankle monitor. Dan

              Found a February 18, 1884 Santa Fe New Mexican newspaper. Seems HA Longabough didnt pick up a letter at the post office. He was getting a final warning before they sent it back to the dead letter... more

                Chris. Excellent find. I'm sure he went there for the green chili. Dan

                  Thanks Dan. Las Cruces and Hatch have the best Green Chili. He would need to go further south for that. In all seriousness, this would have been part of the route he took to get to Cortez. Which... more

                    Chris, There are huge blanks to fill. He heads west 30 August 1882, per Samanna Longabaugh. Has a letter waiting for him in Santa Fe per the New Mexican, 14 February 1884 (you did mean 1884, correct? ... more

            I don't deal w/their timelines in depth before 1890, but that sounds awfully early for him to be down there...
