Vermijo is a fictional small border town in southern Arizona Territory.
In the 1850s Vermijo grew as a successful mining town. The area was rich in minerals, so naturally the town soon became popular as a base for prospectors, hoping to make their fame and fortune.
With this increase in population came the trouble-makers who saw that easy money could be made from these hard working prospectors. They offered to "protect" the prospectors' interests and keep them safe from outlaws.
However official law and order soon followed. The trouble-makers were driven out of town and life began to settle down in Vermijo....for a while.
The rich deposits eventually dried up though and the prospectors left. The town of Vermijo settled back into a peaceful, sleepy community with little need for law officers. The lawmen soon got bored and moved on to more exciting communities like nearby Tombstone and Benson.
In the late 1870s the Lockhart brothers arrived in town.
There were some rogue elements still unsettling the regular townfolk, so when the Lockhart brothers offered their services to maintain peace again in the community the good townspeople of Vermijo accepted their proposals.
Jim, Ace and Carl Lockhart all started out with good intentions and settled in to the community. Shortly after their arrival Ace Lockhart married one of the local girls, Eve, and they lived close to town in a small cabin.
However it was not long before the brothers realised that these townsfolk were easy "prey". They soon started to "protect" the town in their own particular way.
Suddenly it was a good idea not to cross any of the brothers, especially Ace who had a short fuse.
Luke Tyler had been on the trail for a few days and rode into Vermijo for a quiet drink. Instead he came face to face with one of the brothers.
It was a pity that Luke Tyler did not ride on. Things may well have turned out differently if he had.
But then, we wouldn't have had a story to tell..........
