R. L.  Lee Lincoln County, New Mexico ~ Hoax?

I completed the task of extracting names and relevant reports in the 1907 publication of the Carrizozo Outlook newspaper of Lincoln County to affirm or disaffirm the alleged event in 1907 near Oscuro, Lincoln County, New Mexico which claimed that a cowboy named R. L. “Shorty” Lee was killed by lightning and was buried where he fell. A highway sign was erected at the alleged spot many, many years later.

That story has been embellished over time stating that two Mexican cow hands were also killed; and their horses were killed; and several head of cattle were also killed. The embellished stories did not provide the location of the graves of the two Mexican cow hands, or their names.

I have never believed that story. I have objectively searched for the truth. I searched the 1907 newspaper issue by issue, column by column, and paragraph by paragraph for the R. L. Lee report. I found no reference to R. L. Lee. I searched the United States censuses for said cowboy without success. I searched the New Mexico death index, again, with complete failure.

An average of forty-nine people are killed yearly from lightning in the America. July is the peak month of lightning fatalities. June is the second highest month and August third. (Source: weather.com) In no other instance in America could I find that a highway department erected a roadside sign stating that a person was killed by lightning at that spot, --and at tax payers’ expense. Worse yet, the Highway Department erected the R. L. Lee sign based entirely on handed-down hearsay, not on any official record.

New Mexico is next-to-last in lightning deaths each year. Only one death occurred in 2015 in New Mexico. On May 15, 2015 Kalina Jinzo was riding a motorcycle with her boyfriend. They were both struck by lightning near Carrizozo. (Source: kob.com). In the case of Kalina Jinzo, the highway department of New Mexico did not place a roadway sign stating that Miss Jinzo was killed by lightning at that spot. Yet, that death was a documented fact unlike the hearsay of the alleged death of R. L. Lee.

I am asking the highway department to take down the highway sign east of Oscuro or place a similar sign for other people killed on the highways in New Mexico.

The following names were extracted from the 1907 Carrizozo Outlook newspaper. All names copied as spelled. Births, deaths and marriages are underlined for genealogy researchers.
