I, too, would like to know if there is a marker of any kind at this burial site. My g-g-grandfather, Robert Compary, was one of those killed here.

I Went to Tankersly to look for the Graves. If You know where they are, and can direct me to them, I will take a GPS reading so they can be located in the future.

I have read several accounts of the story and would welcome the one you have.

Thanks

I am interested in information about one of the cowboys who were with the Ketchum brothers, Robert Compary.

I have the complete story of this massacre, including the five men's names, their burial place at the site of their deaths, the location, and the genealogy of the Ketchum brothers who where two of the men killed. My mother was a Ketchum. Will be happy to share. BERRY SPRADLEY berrys@hal-pc.org
