    10 men killed, probably Mexicans. OMG Im rolling. Necez obviously went into extinction because of the high population! The operating mine for Montezuma copper was short lived (By records) The operator an employee of Phelps Dodge started employment in Nacozari Mexico. Very similar. He went on to practice law throughout Mexico. Necez is not on any ghosted town lists that I see. So maybe this was an attempt to start a town or region? No gold, silver or copper = No Town.

    Love these newspaper clippings

    The article shown does not mention coins because there were none. At least two cars were carrying freight for mines near Bisbee. My guess on the cause of the initial explosion was smoking, or a fire in a stove in a freight car. The first explosion caused the second, due to explosives being present in both cars.

    I can not find a reference for Necez, Arizona. There were a few small hamlets on the Mexico side with similarly spelled names, so the article may simply be a bit off on geography. Poorly researched and written news was just as common then as now. That, and Douglas being on the Mexican border lends some credence to the idea that Necez may be in Mexico. It could also be the name of a now abandoned siding. Sidings, water stops, etc., had names. Most no longer exist.

    There have been instances of freight cars being destroyed by outlaws attempting to blow safes, with at least three in Arizona resulting in widely scattered coins, but this was not one of them.

    Time for more coffee.

    Possibly. First, find the location. The article provides many clues. Just a matter of follow up on all verifiable information.

    Almost too late for more coffee.

    Forgot the most important thing. Jeff posts these type of articles frequently. While I have not recovered anything due to the information posted, I have been able to add many pieces to various puzzles.
