Circa 1882 - 1892One of the West's Longest and Bloodiest feuds tookplace here and around Pleasant Valley. The Grahams andthe Tewksburys had been in the cattle business and itseems probable that they first fell out over the division of cattle they jointly owned (some believe stole). "Sheep were introduced into the valley in 1887 and this was an aggravating factor, drawing in cattle and sheep men from Holbrook and Flagstaff. Historians still debate the details of the feud that included brand changing, cattle and horse rustling, ambushes, murder, vigilantes, and lynching." But it is well known that as many as twenty men lay dead by its conclusion.
