Bio Photo Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

RE: Mary Amanda Teatsorth Cramer
Your are welcome. I enjoy these mysteries, even when they are not my own.
I had occasion to return to the cemetery today. I found a marker for Markley, Thomas W. and Amanda M. It is not near Teatsorths nor Cramers (I think I came across her parents' markers, very worn).
I do believe this is her. Search I found record of death of Amanda Markley, born 1862 died 1953. Informant was R. Teatsorth. The marriage record to Thomas states that her parents are Daniel Cramer and Christena Hartgie.

I will upload the photos.

Fabricated information about Sam Ketchum
Someone by the name of Janet W. has made you look bad on the FindAGrave page for Samuel W. Ketchum (Find A Grave Memorial# 2435) by posting the following unfounded and completely wrong information on the page:

"Samuel Wesley Ketchum (1854-1899) could not have
committed a 16 Jul 1899 robbery because he was in the NM Territorial Prison in Santa Fe. The robbery was committed 16 Aug 1899 by Thomas Edward ‘Black Jack’Ketchum (1863-1901) without Sam."

There is undeniable proof in court papers, newspaper stories, recollections of people who had some part in the arrest, or who lived in and near Cimarron and witnessed much of the action. Many newspapers of the time ran articles about the gang's undoing. Below is the timeline of the robbery and the death of Sam. If you are interested in the other facts about the outlaw life of Tom and Sam, there is an excellent, well researched, detailed book available, written and researched in depth over literally decades by Jeffrey Burton. It is called THE DEADLIEST OUTLAWS The Ketchum Gang and the Wild Bunch. Second Edition. Published by University of North Texas Press about seven years ago. It is hard bound, just over 500 pages, meticulously researched and containing 50+ photos and over 100 pages of notes and bibliographical sources documenting the author's research.

On Friday, July 7, 1899 Sam Ketchum and Will Carver bought supplies in Cimarron, NM and stashed them away in their hideaway cave in Turkey Creek Canyon above Cimarron. On Monday, July 10th Sam and Will along with Elzy Lay and Bruce "Red" Weaver met and camped in the mountains 18 miles west of the railroad and on the night of July 11th they robbed the train and headed back west toward the Turkey Creek Canyon cave hideout, where the shootout took place later, after the lawmen had discovered the news about men camped up the canyon from Cimarron. The posse started toward the hideout on the morning of the 16th and were within shooting distance of the hideout by 5pm. Fighting started and when it was over after dark, three or four of the posse were shot, two died. Two of the outlaws, Sam and Elzy. were shot. A member of the posse named Wilson "Memphis" Elliot shot Sam and broke his right arm just below the shoulder. His injury was such that he couldn't ride once the gang slipped away after dark and the posse had retreated and got to Cimarron village late on the 17th. The rest of the gang left Sam at a Ute Creek cabin and went on without him. The cabin was occupied by Ed McBride who was acquainted with the gang members. A manhunt was started on the morning of Tuesday the 18th and the men tracked the trail to the Ute Creek cabin where Sam Ketchum was captured. He was taken to the New Mexico Territorial Prison in Santa Fe, and died there on July 24, 1899. I have a photo of him taken either immediately before, or after, he died.

SANTA FE NEWSPAPER*, July 27, 1899:
This morning G. W. Shield, sheriff of Tom Green county, Tex., and G. B. Ketchum of the same county, arrived at Santa Fe to attend to the burial of Samuel Ketchum, who died from the effect of a wound received at the hands of a posse of officers tracking the robbers who held up a train near Folsom recently. The scene when Mr. Ketchum first saw his brothers body was very affecting. Mr. Ketchum had neither seen nor heard from his brother for many years, and had hoped that perhaps the report of death was false after all. But when he saw the body he was convinced, and tears stood in the eye of the strong man. He was unwilling to speak upon the subject, and no information could be gathered from him in reference to the early life of the dead man. Mr. Ketchum is a highly respected and wealthy citizen of San Angelo, and the manner in which his brother met death was a terrible shock to him. The remains were embalmed some days ago by order of the brother of the dead man, and this afternoon Undertaker Wagner interred the body at Odd Fellows' cemetery. After attending to the funeral of his brother Mr. Ketchum and Sheriff Shield left for their home in Texas.

RE: John A Bell
I am glad to be able to take the picture. I know I took more of the 49th and am in trying to process the pictures as quickly as I can. I still have about 6 other cemeteries to go through yet.
Blessing always,

RE: Edwin Gould
I still haven't heard anything from the sextant...but that seems to be commonplace around here. I still have requests from 3 years ago that I am waiting for an answer, at 3 other cemeteries.

The pension record on 38604650 is correct. Mary A Burnham Gould was indeed my Edwin's wife. By the way, Burnham is a road in Empire.
