Alfred Stinson Chaves County, New Mexico

Alfred Stinson came from Iowa to the Territory on the 18th of November, 1887, arriving in Las Vegas. He was born in Williams County, Ohio, but had spent some time in Iowa prior to his removal to the southwest. He remained in Las Vegas until November, 1889, when he went to Chaves County, locating forty miles north of Roswell on the Pecos River. There he took a homestead of one hundred and sixty acres, and now has three hundred and twenty acres on section 14. He is engaged in stock raising, having one hundred and fifty head of cattle.

During the years of his residence in the Territory he has prospered, and as the district has emerged from pioneer conditions he too, has made substantial progress in his business career, and at the same time has contributed to the general improvement of this district.
