Quick Overview

Mrs. Luxmoore, Sharlot Hall, and Kate Coury seated on bench,l. to r. with Col. Luxmoore in foreground, at Frontier Day. In 1882, Sharlot Mabridth Hall (b. 1870, d. 1943) moved from Lincoln County, Kansas to Lynx Creek, Arizona, 12 miles southeast of Prescott, with her father, James Knox Hall, her mother, Adeline Susannah Hall, and her brother, Edward V. Hall (Ted). She became a poet, penning a book of poetry, Cactus and Pine, and a journalist, also serving a stint as editor of Out West Magazine. In 1909, she became the first woman to hold public office in Arizona when she was appointed Territorial Historian. After leaving office in 1912, she cared for her aging parents at their farm, Orchard Ranch, until their deaths. She returned to public life in 1924 when she was selected as elector to carry Arizona's vote to Washington, D. C. In 1927, her long-time dream was realized when the original Territorial Governor's Mansion in Prescott was leased to her for life, and she became the steward of the museum (1928) that now bears her name. During this period she also was a popular speaker before civic and professional groups throughout Arizona. She died on April 9, 1943, and her funeral was a large affair held at the museum, with the Governor giving the principal address.
Lt. Col. Charles T. P. Luxmoore served in the suppression of the mutiny in Bengal in 1857-58, at the capture of Lucknow, and in several other Indian military campaigns as a British army officer. He was active in the YMCA in India. He and his wife visited Prescott and attended the July 4, 1924 Frontier Day Rodeo with Sharlot Hall and Kate Cory.
Kate Thomson Cory (b. February 8, 1861, d. June 12, 1958) was born in Waukegan, Illinois and studied art at the Cooper Union in New York City. She worked as a commercial artist before traveling to Arizona in 1905 where she hoped to start an artist colony on the Hopi reservation at Oraibi. She lived among the Hopi for seven years, participating in their rituals and ceremonies, painting and taking more than 500 photographs of tribal members. In 1912 she moved to Prescott where she became a well-known artist and sculptor, as well as an acknowledged expert on Native American customs. She participated in the design and furnishing of the Smoki Museum where some of her paintings are displayed. She was a close friend of Sharlot Hall, was at her bedside when she died, and is buried beside her in the Pioneer Cemetery in Prescott.
