Canadian-American entertainer, master of sixteen musical instruments, acrobat and aerialist who toured in circuses, once walking a tightrope two thousand feet above the Royal Gorge. He fought in the Civil War, homesteaded in southern Kansas, chased outlaws as a U.S. marshal in the Cherokee Outlet, prospected for gold from Nova Scotia to Central America, and served as a troubleshooter for "Haw" Tabor, the Silver King of Leadville. Buckskin Joe died in Los Angeles on April 20, 1918.
Sy Scholfield quotes "Buckskin Joe: A Memoir" by Edward Jonathan Hoyt (University of Nebraska Press, 1988), p. 1: "At 6 P.M., October 4, 1840, I came kicking and squalling into the world in a log cabin under the shadow of old Mt. Orford near the village of Magog, Lower Canada, now the Province of Quebec."
