Oops ! In my prior comment wongly spelled Pipe Spring with an "s"at the
Enjoyed the article and photos. Our family has visited Pipe Springs many times.
My wife's great-great grandfather James M. Whitmore was killed at Pipe
Springs in 1866.
I enjoyed reading about Pipe Springs and loved seeing the photos. The article
and photos make me wish I could visit in person, especially as I am a direct
descendent of Anson Perry and Emmaline (Great great grandparents)I love it that
the house is still called Winsor Castle, I thought that had gone out of use long
ago! Just as a side note, our direct line goes back to the original keeper of
the actual Windsor castle at the time of William the Conquerer, so the use of
the term has some family history significance. My grandfather, Luther Murkins
Winsor also built a home (with crenelations on the roof!)that was dubbed Winsor
Castle in Logan beside the campus. It later was made into a fraternity house and
still later modified to be the Catholic Church there (re-designed with a regular
roof line and with additions such as a chapel to one side)Thanks again for a
well written and informative article and for the excellent photo gallery.
Good subject, poor writing. State the facts,leave out the PC.Be fair, all sides committed atrocities.But you did spark my
interest to visit the site :)
