Camp Datil, NM: 10/85 to 9/86 - too late

Camp Henley, NM: 4/86 to 8/86 - too late

Fort Craig, NM: 1854 to 6/85 - possibility, but a long way from the Gila

Fort McRae, NM: 4/3/63 to 10/30/76 - too late

Fort Thorn, NM: 12/53 to 3/59 - close possibility

Fort Seldon, NM: 4/65 to 1/91 - too late

Fort Fillmore, NM: 10/23/51 to 4/8/62 - close possibility

Camp Connelly, NM: 4/62 - too late

Socorro Post, NM: Fall/48 to 51 - too early

Fort Conrad, NM: 9/8/51 to 3/31/54 - too early

Camp Robledo, NM: 1853; 1861 to 1863 - too early and too late

Dona Ana Post, NM: 8/1/49 to 51 - too early

Las Cruces Post, NM: 1863 to 1865 - too late

Mesilla Post, NM: 1861 and 1863 - too late

Two New Mexico possibilities here - 1) Fort Thorn near Hatch, NM, which was suffering heavily from sickness in '58-and '59, when it was abandoned. 2) Fort Fillmore at Mesilla, NM. The best choice - closer to the Gila River than Fort Bliss.

Somebody else can look into Arizona forts.
