    Caballo followup - stone maps?

    I found some drawings my Dad (he is passed now) made some years ago from a single stone he found in the Caballos. I remember the stone, it was fairly soft and a kind of fine sandstone in appearance. Yellow tan in color. It was sort-of arrowhead shaped; I'd say 16 inches long toward the point and about 10 inches wide by 4 inches thick, fairly uniform thickness. Using tracing paper, he methodically wiped crushed lead across the stone to get its features. What was unusual was that the stone had stuff on both sides, as well as one edge. We thought it might use the natural cracks in the stone to represent crevaces, draws or canyons. These are photographs of his original drawings.
    Does anyone know what any of this is? Does anyone see anything that might help me interpret? Thanks. G7

    Re: Caballo followup - stone maps?

    That is an extremely finely detailed map!
    Normally, The Spanish didn't do anything any where near that fine/detailed!
    The Spanish Maps assume ,that the person reading them, has some idea of the terrain near the site
    Or! Where they ae going to be going ...
    The maps won't take just anyone to what the maps are depicting !
    I have seen only one other that was that finely detailed !
    It too, was a relatively small sized map, & on both sides of a small rock/stone
    The person who has it, has yet to figure out what or where it is pointing!
    But!
    Then, again, he isn't in the field with it, using it as a guide!
    He has it at his home.
    Then too, it may tie into another set of directions....
    Directions that are carved into some large perment rocks, flat rock faces, etc... along a canyon
    Near a spring, or etc ..
    If you need some help, I & my Partners will be in "The Caballos" sometime this summer ..
    We'll be working on the west side and also, up at the very top!
    If you go to:
    "General Discussion".... then to, "Arizona" ... Then to, "Bradshaw/Firstwater"...
    Reply # 14...
    You'll see a photo of us working at a site in the Caballo Mnts, just north of "Long Bottom Canyon"
    If interested, contact me ...
    Your Map! Maybe THE! MAP! To the huge Spanish Cache that is deep inside the Mnts (Huge Cavern)

    Re: Caballo followup - stone maps?

    Hey Cptbil,
    I might get away this summer, hard to tell just now as I never know what work brings. I looked at # 14. You can sure tell it's the Horse mts. by that black lead half way up. You guys are serious! hahaha. I know where ya are, walked that out one time. Best of luck. Give me a shout.
    There are some things I know, but it would take alot of funds to get there, thus I have never been able to proceed. I sure don't want to mess with investors and in the end be sued like some we know. My learning comes from persons on the ground there as far back as the 50's, as well as my own studies and searches in many places and recon and exploring. We held to ourselves and didn't get into that mountain crowd. (like a bowl of Cereal - too many nuts, fruits, and flakes!) hahaha. We did know know some of the good guys though...
    I really am considering just to put all in a book. All of it. Proof and pictures and all. Of course to do so would create a situation in itself, but I am getting older and time is marching on... so.... I'll see. If I wrote the book, and it was found, I would get my moment of fame and glory!

    Re: Caballo followup - stone maps?

    Kewl,,,I saved it to my computer,,,don't do that very often,,I don't usually even read what anyone has to say,,,pretty bad-huh. But a bit impatient.
    So I never read but the part that it was your dads. I don't like to know much about where it is right now,,,because I didn't read,,and I don't know what anyone else said also. I like it that way. Nothing can interfere with my thoughts. But I want to say, that it looks all to close to something I have or have seen, I would have to search my endless files out.
    I have worked these maps before. It may just be that,,,but,,,it seems a bit more than that,,closer. I riddle alot. ha!
    Send me an email,,,I may have something for you. mail it to my addy,,put my dads map on heading.
    jarroljeppesen@yahoo.com
    I do some things,,,I don't talk about,,,But it gets results.
    I will gander at them later to day, add my own stuff,,,keep a copy and send it to you ifn you want it.
    sometimes there is more- that is where the truth hides, there is no gold and glory there-just fear! Fear that your door will be broken down and people you know will die- because of what you know.

    Re: Caballo followup - stone maps?

    Most interesting thread. It might be worth goldseeker7 time to work with these folks. For some reason these maps do look a bit familiar.
    Remind me of the ones I saw working with Newt.

    Some of the marks on them do show up on other ones I have seen.

    Do be carefull about actual markings or rocks on the mountain. To many have been destroyed, moved etc. Perick being one of the worst.

    Re: Caballo followup - stone maps?

    Hey thanks for the reply.
    Yeah there were more stone maps. I know of 3 that have dissappeared that were good. One had numbers.
    All had arrows and line marker stuff. At least one fell prey to a Bulldozer and the others to someone.
    Yeah I heard Doc blew alot of stuff up. Too bad. Probably knew stuff.
    I am writing a book with everything in it. The catch 22 is that once it's done, folks for years will tramp out these maps and be in the way for the serious, on the other hand I can't do it by myself and will not use investors. There are a couple very hot spots, but very tough country.

    Re: Caballo followup - stone maps?

    Goldseaker7 I love them mountains. Have had a great deal of fun in them, as well as a few encounters with folk that believe they are to be the chosen finders. LOL

    I now the Chatfeilds, ( grew up with Norman, Harveys son: new Bobby Holden ( worked with him of and on) his mother, Melvin M etc. Ah the story's on that place, More than one volume could be wrote.

    Such as knowing these folks helped thin out a bunch of the stories about WD.

    As for collecting the info I still believe Rex W has the best collection of it. As for the story's John V is still the teller of them.

    By the way the RD rock was still intact the last I new. Though one guy keeps moving the thing. LOL what can one do.

    Re: Caballo followup - stone maps?

    Speaking of doc P, in the 70s he blew the face of a clif that covered with a large amount of material a place I was hunting for.

    Strangely enough it was used by a gang doing a gold smuggling operation on the gold price fix in the US. Oh well. LOL Later to get a road into Cable canyon others added more material right on top of it. Will just have to keep a watch on the area. Some day some one may remove that massive overburden.

    Hey..
    Would those guys talk about some they know? I'd still be for getting new perspectives, or maybe relieving some speculation with facts.
    You spoke of Holden, would he be from the old Ranch accross the river?
    Yeah that blasting has done damage in alot of places. Longbottom, Burbank, and up Bat Cave all have had there share. Lot of stuff missing up on top of Brushy too. I heard there used to be a trail up there with the carving of 3 soldiers carrying their hats, ever seen it?

    Re: Caballo followup - stone maps?

    Willie was staying at the Holden ranch. First day he went out with a sextant. Returned that night and asked for a saw, Holden did not have one gave him a file and hammer. that evening he returned with a half bar and placed it on the table. There were others there at the time including Chatfield. Real basic version. Folks always get into arguments from here. LOL Time period was circa late 1929.

    He asked for protection from the sheriff in nov 19th puplished in an el Paso Texas news paper after claiming he had been kidnapped from the Jorndo motel in Hatch. Stories abound from there.

    Just to let you know goldseeker7 the versions of maps you show seem to be variations of what is called the sheep herders map. Original was supposedly on skin handed down among the family for ages.

    Re: Caballo followup - stone maps?

    yeah that's the general theme of the story told by Bilton. Argosy printed it in Feb. of 62.
    There was a Mexican boy whose father had a "sheep herder" map. It's in Chandlers book I think. There was also some letters back in the 50's that somebody said they had seen a map, and was writing explaining it.

    Re: Caballo followup - stone maps?

    "Bilton." Actual name was Milton. it shows up in a lot of the old mining recored at the county offices. That is one problem with the story's. them folks; Holden Gorden and Chatfield new them mountains. The story in Argosy is close to what the Holdens said was the real story.

    Chatfeilds prefer the Burbank Caynon area. etc.

    My step grandparents was involved in the trucks waiting for buster to show them were to start loading. That happened also. LOL

    I have seen a few variations of the sheep herder map, the j 7 map, about twenty variations of the Naverez way bill, etc. The storys about Wilie killing the red head kid is also a variation. Wont even begin to get into the dowsing maps.

    Reality is if he used a sextant then the location was most likely more modern than Spanish.

    Allso cross check the asti orro rock in NM magazine march 1940. It shows marks close to what is on your maps.

    Heck you talk about a bunch of folks going in there because you write a book; LOL they always come in. Every year I encounter new folks going to find it. Who nows maybe some one will stumble in to a stash.
