May 1st. 1888 Lance and Cora Laredo bought the twelve thousand acre Randal Hemphill Ranch, which lay along the Pecos River, eight miles south of Fort Sumner, New Mexico.

The money came from hard work and a huge gift from his father, a railroad tycoon. Lance was twenty four years old and Cora twenty. Their children, Lance Jr and twin sister Laney were three years old when they moved into their massive two story house. A few short months later, Cora took up Lance’s forty five and went looking for four men that had left Lance in a wheel chair, maybe for life. This was one mad woman. Those men had hurt the man she loves.
