No Man's Land
Overview: Brigham Young had been chosen as the new leader of the Mormon Church after the murder of Joseph Smith. One of Young’s directives would be to lead his followers to a land where they could live without being persecuted for their beliefs. In 1847, Randy Maxwell and his wife Annabelle were part of the wagon train of pioneers.
Choosing not to settle in the Salt Lake Basin with the others, Maxwell continued north to a place called Jackson Hole. He purchased several thousand acres of land that bordered a river where he established the Triple R Ranch. His parcel also abutted land owned by Frank Dalton who had ventured there a year earlier. At the time, the two men entered into a gentlemen’s agreement regarding a 500-acre piece of pasture that contained a natural spring. But with no deed or witness to the gentlemen’s handshake deal, when times get tough the open pastures would give way to gunpowder and barb wire fences and a bloody and contentious feud developed.
Finch US Marshal - The Engraver
Overview: Unlocking the door to his Washington, DC. Office, the first thing to catch US Marshal Harry Finch’s eye was the white envelope on the floor. Bending down he picked it up and flipped it over in his hands looking for any markings. There were none.
The next thing Harry did was to remove his brand new gray Stetson hat and flipped it through the air in the direction of the hat and coat rack. This was something his father had done for years when he came home from work.
Harry watched as his hat caught a peg and spun around a couple of times than stopped leaving his hat beautifully hung on the rack just like his dad’s would be. If anyone was there when he did this, they would have noticed his usual stern looking face turn into a small smile as he remembered his dad. As quickly as the smile appeared, it disappeared. Harry wasn’t noted as a person that smiled or laughed a lot...
