Ike Stockton was born on February 29, 1852 and was killed by Deputy Sheriff J. J. Sullivan in late September, 1881. He is buried in the Animas City cemetery in Durango above Oak Drive on Florida Road. His headstone lists his death date as October 26, 1881 but it is a mistake. Ike had a bar next to Sheriff Brady's sheriff's office in Lincoln, New Mexico and when Billy the Kid shot Brady, Ike brought a hatful of water to the scene. Ike angered Durango, Colorado, and Farmington, New Mexico, and Silverton, Colorado residents when he left Lincoln and renewed his bad habits with a series of robberies, rustlings and reprisal murders. After Stockton was shot by Sullivan seven doctors attended to him, amputating his leg at the hip. Townspeople of Animas city and the new town of Durango hollered across the Animas River "Ike Stockton, go to hell!" He died later that night.
