SPIELMAN

Information Compiled by LaDonna Gunn

In early 1865, Sheriff David Spielman, along with Andrew J. Templeton, and several other men, pursued two horse thieves who had stolen "Woodbury's best team of horses." The posse caught the thieves at Trinidad and took the thieves back to Colorado City where Dr. Strickler amputated the thieves' frozen toes.
