Jacob Youtey of Kelvin Can
Tell a Story or Two About the
Hardships cf . Pioneer Days
An insight Into the hardships ex
perienced by the soldiers who patroled
the Arizona frontiers of civilization is
given in the following letter from
Jacob Youtey of Kelvin. He is native
of Pennsylvania, born in Rocksburg,
Somerset county, in 1847. It was m
November, 1866, that Mr. Youtey en
listed in the regular army at Johns
town. He says:
I Joined the 32nd infantry for three
years. I was shipped from there to.
Gorgenos, Island, out from New Yorkj
and on the 20th day of December,
1866, we were shipped (to California
by way of the Isthmus of Panama.
We went across, on a railroad with
cars that had wooden wheels. We
landed in San Francisco on the 11th
day of January. We laid at Cedar
Barracks for two days and then we
took steamer to Willmington, Cali
fornia, which took us two days. We
camped there one month drilling
and then struck out for a 600-mile
march. We marched Into Florence,
Arizona, on the 13th 'day of April.
The first adobe house was being
built by Joe Col ling wood to start the
town of Florence. On the 15th day
of April we set out for Fort Grant.
On the 16th day of April I got into
a scrap with a fellow soldier. He
knocked me down with a dobe brick
and I bit his ear.
My next experience was with hos
tile Indians, about a month after
coming to Fort Grant. We came to
a treaty with about 6000 hostile In
dians. For about a month we is
sued rations to them every eight days
and they appeared to be all right.
One time they came aft their ra
tions and one of the chiefs was dis
satisfied with the meat ration. He
had some words with the caDtaln
The Indian chief gave a war whoop
and in less than five minutes we were
ready tot fight them but there was
not one Indian in sight. They dis
appeared to the mountains like deer.
From that on we hunted and fought
Indians for three vears
In February, 1868. the Indians at
tacked a herd of cattle of about 600
head. Texas cattle they were, being
driven to California. Two Texans
got killed and the rest got away, but
the Indians burned all of their wa
gons.' We got a telegram from Tuc
son at Fort Grant to come to the Gila
river at Winkelman and head the In

We turned out again in June 10,
1S68, to hunt Indians again in the
mountains where Globe Is today. Six
miles below Globe we run into a big
camp of Indians. They all got away
but they had about six acres of wheat
half cut and half standing. They
burned the wheat and everything else,
they had to leave. Since then the
place has been called Wheatfield.
This was the 10th of June, 1868.
There were 300 of us.
In August, 1S69, we were fighting
Indians again and I came to a hand-to-hand

cludes in her reminiscences of early
Arizona the establishment of the first
dairy on the Southslde. She writes,
in part:
"A peddler of Irish goods who had
traveled through Arizona visited our
place in the Bitter Root valley, Mon
tana in the spring of 1881 and told
such wonderful tales of the possibili
ties in the Salt River valley that we
sold our farm and on the first day of
June started to drive to Arizona.
When we reached Ogden we were
advised that the Apache Indians were
on the warpath, so we sold our horses
and went by train from Salt Lake
City to Maricopa. We arrived at Old
Maricopa July 12 when the thermom
eter was registering 128 degrees at 8
o'clock in the morning.
The morning stage had already
gone but we were fortunate by se
curing a ride in a government ambu
lance which ; ad Just arrived with
some officers and was about to re
turn to Mesa.
Later we went to the Hayden home.
I remember asking Mrs. Hayden how
anyone could work in the heat of Ari
zona and her reply: "You will never
find a place where one can accomp
lish more." 1 eventually found how
true her words were.
At one time Mr. Mahan went to
Fort McDowell, and left me alone
with our little boy. The Indians would
come and watch us but I did not
fear them. But one night I heard a
buzzing, persistent sound. The moon
light made things appear very clearly
but I could not discover the reason
for the sound. It continued all night.
In the morning l discovered that a
certain species of June bug had in
vaded the Cottonwood trees and de

been caused by the buzzing of their

Here Is a vivid picture of life at
Sacaton as seen by Mrs. Anna C.
Forbach In the early 70's. Mrs. For-
bach and her husband kept the stage
station and store at Sacaton and thus
had occasion to meet some of the
characters of the frontier whose
names at least are well known to
this generation. Mrs. Forbach writes
as follows:
"I came with my husband, Peter
Forbach, to Sacaton, Ariz., in April,
1873. Our station was a store, also
a trading post whece we traded with
the Indians, also a stage station. All
travelers had to stop at Sacaton. es
pecially traveling from Yuma, Pres
cott and Tucson. Sacaton was also
a government supply station, and you
can see that it must have been e
very lively place.
"One time -General Crook came
down from tne north riding on a
donkey. A daughter of General von
Moltk, famous In the Franco-Prussian
war, was in the party. They

rield s name engraved on it. Sac
An interesting resume of the early
days in Arizona is furnished in the
following letter from Henry Earle
Steele of Ajo, who was born in Tuc
son in 1885.
I was born in Tucson, Ariz., Decem
ber 16, 1885, but lived at Wilcox the
greater part of my life and have lived
in different parts of the state con
tinuously since my birth. The Indian
outbreaks had almost ceased when I
was born with the exceptions of a
few depredations committed by the
Apache Kid, who with a few follow
ers from the San Carlos reservation
would harass ' the cattle ranchers
and small settlements.
I have a vivid recollection of one of
these outbreaks. We were living on
a cattle ranch nine miles southwest
of Wilcox. At this time my father,
Tom Steele, was at Fort Huachuca
putting in meat for the government.
An old gentleman named Mark Allen,
who lived alone on a ranch three
miles from ours was our nearest
neighbor. One morning, about day
light, he heard his dogs barking and
looking out the window he saw sev
eral Indians drawing water from Jiis
well about 50 yards away. He
grabbed his old trusty with all the
ammunition he had and lay in wait
for them when they should attack the
house. But after killing a calf for
meat and piercin- one of the dogs
with an arrow the Indians went their
way. As soon as Allen could get his
horse from the pasture he rode at
breakneck speed to our ranch and
found us unmolested.
I lived in Safford during the con
struction of the railroad from Bowie
to Globe in 1895. Before this road
was built everything was hauled by
team from Wilcox. I have seen as
many aa 22 horses and mules hitched
to two or three large wagons. On
the return trip the wagons would
carry copper bullion. I have seen
millions of pounds of copper pulled
alongside the Southern Pacific tracks
waiting for cars to take it away.
Those were flourishing days in the
town of Wilcox. With the teaming
and cattle business it was one of the
liveliest towns in the state, more cat
tle being shipped from that station
than from any other place in state.
My parents and grandparents lived
at Wilcox which was built in 1880,
and I am going to add a few remarks
with regard to my grandfather, Wil
Ham H. Kirkland, who died at Wink
elman about 12 years ago and is now
resting in the Double Butte cemetery
at Tempe. He had written a history
of his early career, but unfortunately
this was destroyed when his home
was burned. In looking over some old
papers and clippings, however, I have
found the following, which will prob
ably be of interest:
He came to Tucson on January 17,
1856, and was the first white man to
employ white labor in the state He
produced the first pine lumber, and
graded the first roads in Arizona. He
was also the first to start in business
outside , of Tucson, setting up in the
Santa Rita mountains. When people
were compelled to travel at night to
get to Sonora, Max., unless they were
in large force, he bought 200 head of
cows from Don Joaquin Estleaman
These cows were the first herd
brought out of Mexico for the pur
pose of stocking a cattle ranch in
Arizona by a white man. This was
in 1857.
I have heard him say he was the
first white man married to a white
woman in the state, having taken a
wife here in 1S59 or I860. He was cap
tain of the Arizona volunteers and
raised the Stars and Stripes over
Arizona when the territory waa taken
over from Mexico as a part of the
Gadsden purchase.
A veteran of the Civil war, Thomas
Boyle, age 81, oame to Arizona from
California to Yuma, drove a team to
the lower Gulf of Caligornia. "Later,'

And the crafty Indian braves.
Hear the warcry, see the struggle.
See the lonely wayside graves.
Oh, what thoughts of dauntless . pa
Do the scenes to me recall
The fearless men, the noble women
Seemingly about to fall.
They are gone, the old frontiersmen.
They have crossed the Big Divide;
They have crossed the Silent River,
Gone to rest on the other side.
Now we hear the tales repeated.
Tales of valor, love and tears.
More like fables or traditions
From the shores of yester-years.
Tales of ruthless Western gunmen
In the days that knew no- law
But the trusty old six shooter
And who was quickest on the draw.
Many stories, some pathetic
And some in comedy. are told
Of shattered hopes and wasted riches
la the days of blood and gold.
Broken hearts and lost ambitions,
Loyal friendship, bitter hate.
Tales of hardship, death and danger
Of the past they now relate.
They are gone, the old frontiersmen,
With the cowboy of tne west;
They are sleeping on the mesas.
On the twilight snores or rest.
Come with me. my friend; we .will
wander back through the mists of
ears: we will linger by the fliaker
ing camp fires; we will listen to the
tales of the old frontiersmen; we will
follow the rainbow as it flits o'er the
hill tops and. in passing. I will show
ou the graves by the wayside, wnere
are sleeping the heroes of yesterday.
Only a' grave by the wayside.
Only a grass covered mound. -
There Inscribed on the headstone
This simple sentence I found
Written by hands unskillful.
The lines uneven ana close:
"Gone to rest on the other side.
My best friend, Adios."
As I read on the time worn granite
The words half blotted by years,
think of the good oidtimers.
The brave old pioneers.
The sentence that aeeraa so simple.
By the unskilled hand written close.
To me it speaks in volumes
"My best irieno, aoios. -
He was one of those kind of fel
lows who would stoop to pat the
head of a homeless dog; he would
linger by the wayside to plant a riow-
er on an unmarked grave, yet he was
only a gambler this friend of mine
but nona blushed to call rum iriena,
for his. they said, was a heart oi
He was fearless in life.
He flirted with fate;
He dealt the cards fair
And played the game straight;
He cared not for laurels.
Nor cared he for fame;
Just dealt above board .
And played a clean game.
When chances he took.
By Dame Fortune beguiled.
He won without boasting.
He lost, and he smiled.
A man among men.
His debts were all paid.
None left empty-handed
Who asked him for aid.
With a smile on his lips.
A kind word of cheer.
He lived his own life
Without boast, without fear.
Somebody wrote
On the stone 'neath hianame:
"He was true to his mends.
He played a clean game."
