Probably the speed of a Steam Locomotive and a Diesel would be probably about the same, the travel time in the early 1900's could be comparable.

The distance between New York to Albuquerque is 1809.44 miles or 2911.28 km. In 2019 a train trip from New York to Albuquerque typically takes 54 hours, If you are looking to get to Albuquerque faster, the fastest advertised duration is offered by Amtrak. The fastest train trip covers the distance in 49 hours and 49 minutes to get from New York to Albuquerque.

Albuquerque to Gibson? Probably by car. Time?  Money no problem!

Don't know if you have this...

Globe and Mail March 20 1940 page 4.  Under the heading Metropolitan Briefs...it says that Inspector Frank B Creasy of No. 5 District, Provincial Police, with headquarters at Queens Park, left the force on leave for the duration of the War for service with the Provost Corps.  He enters the military branch of the service with rank of sublieutenant.  During the Great War, he was with the Royal Canadian Dragoons.

Do you have his obituary from 1983??  If not, I can send it to you.  There is quite a lot of information in it.   There is also the death notice...mentioning his 2 daughters.

There is another note in the Globe from 1940 - about the Provost Company.  Frank is going to by the officer in charge of No 2 Provost Company.  There will be 35 other ranks in the company.  No 1 Provost Company has already gone overseas and No 2 will also be going overseas.  They are training at the Exhibition Park Camp

Wonder if he married again....wife mentioned in his obit is Effie.  She predeceased him. 

Not seeing an obit for her, but found one for her sister in 1971...Margaret Barnard, nee Elliott.  Sister of Mrs Frank Creasy (Effie) of Toronto.

Money no problem for the possible car ride to Gibson from the train station! Giles Master and his brother Robert Creasy Master, the relatives of Frank Burrard Creasy, were successful merchants in McKinley County, NM. It looks like F. B. Creasy married twice. First wife Lily Gough born 1878, Barrow in Furness, Lancashire, England. Died Canada, 1958.

Its not a genealogical problem but "Billy the Kid" would have taken a terrible risk in confiding his identity to Frank. I have F.B.C's obituary. Thank you for the offer.

Interesting family!

I found the immigration record of Lily Clarence the Bride to be of Frank Burrrard Creasy. I transcribed it in a readable form as - Ship Cedric, New York, 1913. Lily Clarence 35, Widow, previously living in Hanley, Staffordshire, England, accompanied by her daughters Dorothy (13) and Phyllis (7) heading to Ramah, New Mexico.

In the Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, area Lily Gough had married James Clarence in 1899. He died in 1906 in that same area.

(From the Internet) In the early 1900's, Bob and Giles Master came from England to start the first permanent store, the Ramah Trading Post. It was originally located west of the town of Ramah, later being moved to the stone building that is still seen just off Hwy. 53 in the center of Ramah. Other turn-of-the-century buildings include: the Ashcroft-Merrill home (on the National Historic Register), the Marius Bond home near the Post Office, the two-story Bloomfield home, and the Ramah Museum, built in 1905, also on the National Historic Register. The Masters brought in black locust trees for their home for its hard wood for wagon and farming parts (reaches, tool handles, and double-trees). These trees still line the streets of Ramah as do Chinese Elm introduced in the 1930's by the Soil Conservation Service for shade, windbreaks and erosion control.

Robert (Bob) and Giles are the Cousins of Frank Burrard Creasy. Frank was a Deputy Sherriff in New Mexico. If he was one in 1913 he may have been based in Gibson where he married Lily.
