I found just now photos of 'The officers quarters at Mount Vernon Barracks, Alabama'. Look closely at the wall with turrets and a balcony at home - it's the same place where picture Zele and his wife Juana was taken.
Mithlo - very interesting picture that you showed. So now there is an extra man ... completely unidentified. that's pretty amazing, dont you think? surely someone in New mexico or Oklahoma must know who he is. Don't you wish you could go back in time and talk to these people?? The stories that this man could tell - would give so much information. :-)
Giving time..... I will figure out who this man is....and the woman!!!! Funny thing is....there is a well-known photograph of Geronimo himself setting on this very same bench!!!! He's wearing "striped" pants!!!! Most likely there were a series of photographs taken that day of many different people! INTRIGUING!!!!HA!!
he's older now in that picture. but he still looks pretty healthy and he was a strong man at one time. I would not be surprised if he was a good warrior as a young man. I will be very interested to see what you come up with Mithlo :-)
