Greetings and thanks for the follow up.
I am researching events and people associated with Las Vegas, NM in 1880s, and especially info on the lives, personality, activities, and thoughts and feelings of key people in that town at that time. Obviously, the Kooglers, as owners, reporters, and editors of the LV Gazette were critical to the town at that time.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to find any photos or info about the W. G Koogler and his brothers and son during this period other than what I find in old copies of the Gazette.
It is interesting that for some of the key events that made news throughout Las Vegas and NM at this time, such as the death and burial of Billy the Kid, the reward to Pat Garrett for killing the Kid, and the activities of the doctors in LV in 1881 and 1882, received virtually no space in either the Daily or Weekly Gazettes.
If your husband or family has photos of the Kooglers, any diaries, journals or letters written by them, or family stories about the Kooglers and their Gazette during the late 1870s and throughout the first part of the 1880s, I would appreciate looking at them.
You can contact me directly at or 480-965-7101, here at Arizona State University, if you want.
Thanks so much for answering, and look forward to hearing more from the Koogler family.
Sincerely, Bob
