Hmm the photographs in posts #41 and #42 certainly don't show the same man. Rowdy remains a mysterious man, since there are at least three different individuals that are identified by that name (on photographs). I don't think that there were three men by the same name, though.
First, we have the identification on the Fly photographs that I already posted. Second, there's the man in post #41 Third, there's the picture from post #43, in which the third man from the left is identified as Rowdy (see SIRIS siris-archives.si.edu/ipac20/ipac.jsp?session=13124660G2541.17494&profile=all&source=~!siarchives&view=subscriptionsummary&uri=full=3100001~!34206~!7&ri=2&aspect=subtab157&menu=search&ipp=20&spp=20&staffonly=&term=apache+chiefs&index=.GW&uindex=&aspect=subtab157&menu=search&ri=2

Greetings, I am from the San Carlos Apache Tribe. I am searching for information on my great grandfather. He was half Irish and half Mexican. He married my great grandmother Hannah who was 4/4 Apache. His Apache name was Indashkeen (Whiteboy). He eventually was named Harvey Naskin. He was an Apache Scout. I have found little information from the Indian Census Records. Thank you.
i just visited san carlos and peridot until two weeks ago! i have met many nice people there and i think i even found a new friend in herb stevens, apache cultural center director.
unfortunately, i couldn't find much about your great-grandfather either.
There is some info about a man named "Indaschin" in Charles Collins' book "An Apache Nightmare: The Battle at Cibecue Creek". I think it's pretty safe to say that this is an alternative spelling of your great-grandfather's Nde Name. You will also find some info in Grenville Goodwin's "The Social Organization of the Western Apache". I will gladly see what info I can get out of those books as soon as I get back home.
Below you find the only image I have of him, as well several entries in the Arizona Scouts Enlistment Roll. Since the scouts' names were written down in the enlisment roll the way they were understood by whoever was in charge of it, you will find many entries with different spellings, even though it's one and the same man.
Best wishes from Switzerland, Marco

Thank you so much for the picture. I have seen this picture before but never owned a copy of it. I can see how the two names on the list of the scout enlistment is very similar. I am almost positive it was spell nash keen. I will keep looking into this. Thank you so much for your help. Herb Stevens is a colorful character isn't he? He is a good friend of mine. I hope you enjoyed your visit on my reservation. ndnhummingbird.
