New Mexico Fullerton's Rangers

Julias Caesar Meyer was born July 18, 1866, in Paris, Monroe County, Missouri, to John Jacob Meyer and Anna Baechtold. His first marriage gave him three little children to raise on a homestead in Claimore, Oklahoma, as his first wife died, but it is said he left the children with his sister and moved to New Mexico. Julias spoke excellent Spanish. He married Librada Sanchez of Albuquerque. She was born in 1879. Ten children were born to this family. When the new county of Torrence was established, he became a deputy sheriff. He became a New Mexico Territorial Ranger for four years and then was elected sheriff in 1908. He became friends with Deputy Federal Marshall, Fred Fornoff, who later became a Captain of the New Mexico Rangers. Meyer and Captain Fornoff continued to work together and became long term partners in a cattle ranch and salt mining business in Torrence County. Meyer continued to work the "salt licks" until 1918. He left the sheriff's office after statehood and opened a garage and service station in Willard, New Mexico. His son operted the ranch and farm. His wife, Librada, died in Willard in 1914. In 1915, 49 year old Meyer married for the last time to 27 year old Geneva Epler. They had two sons and a daughter. Meyer had an advanced case of consumption in 1930, so they moved to a drier climate of California. He died in California on August 1, 1942 and is buried in Santa Ana, Orange County, California, in Westminster Memorial Park. His wife, Geneva, is also buried there. (bio by: Nancy E Brown)
