Searching for any info of when reynolds ran cattle in colorado in the 1880s with the diamond jo cattlr brand. Our museum has the brand but little info. supposedly reynolds brought up longhorns from texas and took a big loss in 1884 due to the harsh winter. his foreman was reportedly john morrissey.

MARY POWELL c.1861 - a rare model / Part 1/ Rex Stewart

I arose at 6 am after a few hours rest,and my usual peek out the door confirmed that for once, the weather man was right! The wind was now blowing from the north at about 30 miles per hour, and the temperature was about 30 degrees. Bitter cold with the wind chill! I put on long johns and an extra coat, yanked my ball cap down tight on my head and stepped out into the cold.

Secure at Robin St. Wharf, New Orleans
I rested well, as only a captain can when he knows his vessel is tied up securely in a safe port. I arose at 7 am and prepared for the day and the beginning of a new cruise. I hoped to spend the morning reviewing the upcoming cruises on the Intercoastal Waterway, and to call all the ports and locks along our route to let them know we were coming. The morning was clear and warm as I made my way into the office to confer with my boss in the Marine Operations...
