Joseph and his two sons, Pierre and Albert, will be inducted into the 2020 Arizona Ranchers and Farmers Hall of Fame Saturday, March 7 at the Wigwam Resort. More to follow about this family after the event.
From last night’s induction ceremony for the Pouquettes.
It came to my attention a few years ago that the sheep industry in Arizona was disappearing. I love history, traveling to new places and research. These have been combined in researching this history. I am an independent researcher and speaker and also part of AZ Speaks with the Arizona Humanities. I hold a BA in Anthropology, a MA and Ph.D. in geography. My masters was in land use geography and the Ph.D. was more in historical geography. I love to travel and have visited all seven continents and more than 50 countries. I am a member of the Women Writing the West.

I am the oldest son of Charlotte Pouquette, one of Frank Pouquettes daughters. I am very sorry I missed the event, as I was not aware of such a grand gathering for such awesome men in their time . I am proud of our heritage, and try to preserve my knowledge by keeping a journal . Maybe one day it can be used to continue documentation of our family, and the adventures we took through the years.
I would love to get your side of the family history as I don’t have much. I know Simone came into Arizona first, left and then came back. He bought the Red Hill Ranch back in the late 1880s or early 1890s. I am looking through old court documents to try to find the exact date so any information you can share would be greatly appreciated. I am working on a second book on families that were not part of the first book or where I found additional information that I think is important to record for posterity.
I am very grateful for what you do, and anything I can provide you with, I will be more than happy to do my best to get accurate information to add to our family’s history .
Hey Todd. Where do you live? I have found more information about the Pouquettes.
I live in Williams, my address is 209 West Hancock Avenue, right behind the old school house. My telephone number is (928)-221-2413. Feel free to call or come over anytime, I would very much enjoy the company.
