Sheriff’s of Baca County


1950 Baca County Sheriff Voting Tally Sheet.  Also note the Voting Tally for:

County Superintendent of Schools between Eva Acre and Lillian Collings

County Commissioner, 2nd Commissioner District  between Jess Suhler and Lee Twyford.

Hope I don’t stir up some 60 year old political wounds.

Here is my Granddad Huckaby’s 1953 – 54 Colorado Rail Pass for The Achison, Topeka and the Santa Fe.

Here are some Baca County Sheriff artifacts to get this conversation rolling.   The first is my granddad’s badge.

The picture is very cool so I will start with this one. It is labeled 1951 Colorado Sheriff and Peace Officers Convention. It is in Denver and Granddad is far right on the first row. Does anyone recognize the location.
