The closest any of my known ancestors that lived in the 'Wild West' of outlaws and Indians is Charles A. Weinhart. He is the oldest brother of my gg-grandfather Lorenzo Weinhart. On July 22, 1870 he enlisted in the U.S. Army. He was sent from Iowa to Fort Bayard, New Mexico where he became part of the 8th Cavalry, Company I. On April 28, 1971 he was killed in an Indian (probably Apache) raid while his troop was patrolling around Silver City. Silver City was booming at this time because silver had just been discovered in the area. The map shows the location of Silver City. It is found in the lower left corner of the map.
