Custodial History
Custodial History
Original prepared by Captain John C. Cremony, 2nd Cavalry, California Volunteers at Fort Sumner, Bosque Redondo, on the Pecos River [New Mexico], in 1863 and forwarded to the Smithsonian Institution by Brigadier General James H. Carleton, Commanding, Department of New Mexico. (Note by Gibbs on page 7).
Custodial History
Cremony, in his Life Among the Apaches, Tucson, 1951, page 211 (original edition, 1868), tells of recording this vocabulary from Juan Cojo, a Mexican captive living with the Apache for about 20 years, and checking the material with "the leading warriors of the tribe."
Custodial History
The document "Apache words required..." appears to be handwriting of Lt. Henry B. Bristol; cf. 1865 correspondence signed by Bristol, in File No. 97. This Mescalero vocabulary seems to have been transmitted by Bristol at same time (1865) as his Navaho vocabulary (No. 97).
