as bom in Delaware county, Indiana, on the 21stday of October, 1847. I enlisted in Co. E., 147th IndianaRegiment, March 5th, 1865. But as that greatest ofmodern wars was near its close, I did not even see the bigend of the last of it. I came to Kansas in 1866, stoppingfor a time in the old Delaware Indian Reserve, southwestof Fort Leavenworth. From among the Delawares Iwent out to northwest Kansas, in 1872, and took up aclaim on the Prairie Dog, in Decatur county. I trapped,and hunted buffalo, until the Indians stole my stock,when I had to quit hunting long enough to get even, anda httle ahead, of the redskins. In summer-time I wouldput in my time improving my homestead; in winter,hunting and trapping. But when Kansas passed herdrastic hunting law, concerning the buffalo-hide hunters,I drifted to the Panhandle of Texas, in 1876 (after takingin the Philadelphia Centennial); for the next three andone-half years you have had a pretty good trail of me.(297) 298 THE BORDER AND THE BUFFALO.
