Franz Huning was one of many traders hauling merchandise over the Santa Fe Trail in the 1860's. His home was in Albuquerque, New Mexico. On this particular trip in 1867, he was to bringing his mother-in-law, Martha Franke and her youngest son, Fritz to Albuquerque. On their way, tragedy struck near the Plum Buttes.
