EnigmaticThree?

Weren't they headed out for a high-confidence search on April 20th (opening day for Yellowstone--first car)? Or did I dream that?

If you are still looking for that ranch, you might investigate the disputes associated with the Maxwell Land Grant. Your ranch may have disappeared under dispute if it was in that area.

From Wikipedia:

"The Maxwell Land Grant, also known as the Beaubien-Miranda Land Grant, was a 1,714,765-acre (6,939.41 km2) Mexican land grant in Colfax County, New Mexico and part of adjoining Las Animas County, Colorado. This 1841 land grant was one of the largest contiguous private landholdings in the history of the United States. The New Mexico towns of Cimarron, Colfax, Dawson, Elizabethtown, French, Lynn, Maxwell, Miami, Raton, Rayado, Springer, Ute Park and Vermejo Park, came to be located within the grant, as well as numerous other towns that are now ghost towns.

...
English control

In 1870, for reasons that are not clear, Maxwell decided to sell the Grant. A group of financiers, representing an English syndicate, purchased the Grant for a reported price of $1,350,000. Maxwell moved to Santa Fe, and then to Fort Sumner, where he died in 1875.

The new owners formed the Maxwell Land Grant and Railway Company. They attempted to remove the squatters from the Grant. Some of the squatters felt that they had Maxwell's unwritten permission to live on the Grant. Many people left, but some stayed and fought. This struggle between owners and squatters came to be called the Colfax County War. F.J. Tolby, a minister sympathetic to the squatters was murdered on September 14, 1875."

Tolby is famous for being murdered in Cimarron Canyon, by the way. (No place for the meek). There is a trail named Tolby in the Canyon. It is closed in the spring/early summer for elk calving.

BT, you would have made a great history professor. Your research is amazing!
