Looking through 1885 newspapers from across the state I found these sheep brands. It was the first time in my research that I had found sheep brands listed with the cattle brands. Only four found so far but the search is still ongoing. I am just half-way through 1885 newspapers.

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. View all posts by arizonasheephistory
