Photo's of possible Apache Scout with Filipino blood found in old Tucson house. Legend has it that a Filipino soldier of the Portola Expedition into California deserted and married a White Mountain Apache squaw in Arizona.
These photo's possible descendant of such soldier who was a scout for the US Army about 1883-1895
maybe you did not read this right. this guy has been gone for over 120 years. i heard that his spirits does live in the mountains by me and maybe in the future we can get a ghost picture of him on a horse.
if you eat the heart of your victim you inherit their soul. i think one of the victims had long hair like CUSTER but black

Is that a Winchester '73 or a replica? The revolver looks like one I saw at a sale during a family trip to Cal. in 1997. it was in a Western store in a 'Danish Town' complete with a windmill and the gun was on offer for just $25. I cried for days as I knew I could not bring it into England, even if it was deactivated. Are you sure of the Filipino connection? If you have read the book "1423" you would know that several thousand Chinese workers & concubines had to be abandoned by the Grand Fleet when some of the ships were wrecked off the coast of Haiti. The Island people were Cannibals, so already having trading posts on the American coast, the survivors were left behind & told to wait for the next tour of the fleet ( little knowing that was the last expedition by a Chinese fleet to ever leave the country again) You don't think with all that long hair, the Apaches had a link to the Macabebes, HA HA?
Greeting's from Fort Apache. A real place in Arizona but I am in California.
The rifle is a 1873 but a replica from Italy. It has the rare 30 inch barrel. The pistol is also a 1873 replica Colt made by the same company Uberti out of Italy. I got these in the early 80's before they cost what they do know. I wanted to do Western at the time in a club called "Single Action Shooting Society". SASS.
It is true that a Filipino was with the Portola Expedition into California in 1776. Also that Mexico had a little community of Filipino's from the Manila ships into Acapulco. So it could be possible that in the 1800's there was such a man I am representing.
I am Filipino mixed by my father who met my mom on a reservation back in the 30's in Arizona who is Mexican and Indian (possible Apache by my grandmother).
The comments I made with this photo were a gag for Victor and mostly for Ray Ortega who has about every impression you can think of, except a Filipino Apache outfit. ha ha Right Ray?
So, sorry to mislead you on the Filipino Apache Scout Legend. My dad was a real Scout (26th Cavalry) and the Apache in the family was suppose to be a Scout or a Indian Police. Why the Impression.
Hope you continue your adventures in England and I enjoy your contributions to the forum.
