J. K. P. Pipkin San Juan County, New Mexico

J. K. P. Pipkin, living at Fruitland, was born in Tennessee in 1840 and became a resident of Arkansas when a youth of eleven years. He resided in that state for twenty-six years, beginning in 1851, and in 1877 came to Savoya (now Ramah), New Mexico. Since 1892 he has resided at Fruitland, and at the time of his arrival the only residents of the valley were Luther Burnham, Walter Stevens and Judge Webster.

Mr. Pipkin has since been identified with ranching interests and has contributed in substantial measure to the reclamation of the wild lands of this district for the purposes of civilization. He is a member of the Mormon Church.
