Brides for Brethren: Arizona Territory — 1854-1883


Mr. Drachman has received a letter from California which brings the gay tidings of the sudden and unexpected marriage of I. Goldberg, the everlasting "Lomo de Oro." A few of his friends at the time of his departure for California some three months ago had a sneaking idea that his "pleasure trip" would result in some such tragedy. MORAL: Now all young men a warning take - and stay at home for mercy sake.

The above item appeared in the Tucson Weekly Arizonan, November 11, 1870. A month later, the editor updated his report on the colorful "Lomo de Oro," a playful Spanish rendition of the name Goldberg.
