Fortunately, they Naiche/Geronimo people was also photographed a number of times during their short stay at Fort Bowie in september 1886. We have posted several of these images already, mostly of the two leaders. There seems to be at least two more of both Naiche and Geronimo. Does anybody have these? Also, any ideas on who these people are?
Jeroen, I am sure having seen the man crouching in the front identified as Bésh, but I don't remember the source.
May very well be him, compare with the train photo - the eyes, nose, moccassins, and ring on the right hand would fit the above image. He wears a different shirt and headband on the train image - but as we know the Apache were a cleanly people - he may very well have changed clothing.
Interestingly, above man's features also fit with the man in the following image... could it be Bésh??
At the very least, the man on the left seems to be the same man as the one who's sitting far right in the train image. If it's "Old Man Beshe" or not, who later was the oldest Chiricahua at Fort Sill...
