Description: Troy's dad came here to this area and homesteaded in 1887, I think it was. He homesteaded some property down at Kirtland, New Mexico, when William McKinley was president. He homesteaded 160 acres. He began trading with the Indians from that time. He would go with his wagon to Durango, Colorado, and he always carried a gun on his hip in those times. I have his gun with ivory handles on it.
