Pictured above are two types of baskets that were produced during the basketmaker time period: 2500 B.C to 500 A.D. Baskets shown above were probably discovered at the site at Emigrant Springs south of Sanders, Az. This site appears to have been excavated by a pot hunter and not a professional Archaeologist. So it most likely is a great loss to the history of this region. Researching the work of many archaeologist who have studied the area around Northeast Arizona I have not uncovered any work done at this site.
The two paintings above were done by Natasha Graf, which she painted on her grandma’s suitcase to make it easy to identify while traveling. Natasha is a student at University of Central Oklahoma. Her field is elementary education. I will be using these drawings as logos for the Beale Wagon Road Publishing Co. books.
In this post I am adding an article from the Frontier Times Magazine that tells the story of the robbery by one of the outlaws, Dan Harvick, first published in 1926 in a Los Angeles, California. I have edited it in some places that I will write in another post. Hope you enjoy reading it.
Pictured in this post are photos of the four outlaws, who were sent to the Yuma Territorial Prison. These men were sentenced to 25 years for robbing the Atlantic & Pacific train at Canyon Diablo, Arizona the photos were taken after they had arrived at the prison.
The top photo is of Jack Smith, next is of Long John Halford, the third is of Dan Harvick and the fourth of William D. Styron.
The last post has an error in it. The third photo is of William D. Styron and this photo above is of Dan Harvick.
Above is another drawing of rock art that is found at the site in Sanders, Az. which dates to more than two thousand years. As stated in the last post the Zuni Indian told Beale and Thorburn that the site dated before the great waters came. He is referring to a flood that is similar to the Noah flood that is recorded in the Bible. There are several Indian tribes in the United States that record that the flood was so great that only a few people survived in its wake. The great flood story has been recorded in many nations in the world.
Below is a modern map showing the location of Emigrant Springs and the Pithouse Village.
