WILLIAM F. SCHMALSLE, SCOUT

German born frontiersman hired by Lieutenant Frank Baldwin at Fort Dodge as a scout for the Miles’ expedition into the Panhandle of Texas. His slight build and short stature hardly suggested he would become a hero, but he was hired because he could shoot and ride. He was a scout with the Lyman wagon train. Schmalsle exhibited his courage, when, on September 10, 1874, he slipped out under the cover of darkness to ride seventy-five miles to Fort Supply for help. On November 8, 1874, Schmalsle spotted Grey Beard’s Cheyenne camp on McClellan Creek and reported to Baldwin who charged the camp and rescued the youngest Germaine sisters.

William F. Schmalsle was my relative. My name is Ellen K. Compton. I am trying to find out where he hunted buffalo.
