I am wondering if you can clarify the meaning of the word "SCOUTS" in your last post. I am just trying to understand what it means. For example, I was surprised to see Perico and Yahnozha on that list of scouts. Chatto ... I would expect. But Perico? That's confusing me :-)
Also, I just happened to notice that you are listed as being in the Mexican Sierra Madre. Is that your permanent location - it's very interesting.
If you watched closely spaced posts on this thread, you would not ask such questions. Check list SCOUTS here: Company 'I' 12th Infantry «Thread Started on Mar 29, 2011, 12:09 pm»
naiches2 .... Sorry - you are quite right that I did not read backwards on the thread. i will try to do that in the future.
Some dates that you are mentioning, such as those for Perico, now are understandable. The first set of dates for Yanozha were not what I was expecting. Please understand that I am not trying to make judgments about history or people. I am just piecing together what happened on the last expeditions by Geronimo, and realizing that more was taking place than some books have discussed. It was a complicated time.
Naiches2 ... thanks. I'm certainly not doubting your word on this.
For Chirichaua readers - i understand the sensitvity of this topic and I am not making any personal judgments at all about people who served with the US Cavalry or rode with Geronimo. The participation by Yahnozha - and others like him - would have added a lot of detailed knowledge to the cavalry about the location of the "war trails" traveled by Geronimo and his band in southern Arizona and northern Mexico. This factor could have been on Geronimo's mind in his final expeditions (although Yahnozha was apparently not a Scout during the time of the final surrender).
Any idea when this picture was taken, I know it was taken at Fort Sill but around what time? I think the lady on the far right must be his wife Viola and the children possibly Agnes and Louise Chihuahua? Any one have any ideas who the other two ladies might be?
Sorry for all the questions any help much appreciated.

I think photo was taking in 1905-1906. This group are "active church members" of Dutch Reformed Church mission. See - H. Henrietta Stockel: 'On the bloody road to Jesus: Christianity and the Chiricahua Apaches', p.p. 183-184
Hi, found this wonderfull photograph of Jason Betzinez on the net.
