Emanuel Dubbs ( 1843 - 1932 )  Category ( Businessmen_Women ) [suggest a correction]

Emanuel Dubbs was born in 1843 in Ohio. He was the youngest child with five siblings. Very little is known about the early childhood of Emanuel Dubbs. However, it is believed that he was very close to one of his brothers who later became one of his business partners.

Dubbs attended Mount Union College before he enlisted in the Ohio Infantry. After serving in the military briefly, he moved to Indiana where he went into a lumber related business with his brother.

Emanuel Dubbs was married to a woman by the name of Angeline. A fire destroyed his sawmill lumber business so he packed up his wife and they moved to Kansas. Once they arrived, Dubbs began working among the railroad construction crews.

Soon Dubbs built a house that was believed to be just outside of the Dodge City boundaries. He opened a beer garden as well about five miles from the city. There, he served what was fondly called "milk punch" as well as beer. Soon, Dubbs had earned a reputation for his "Buttermilk Ranch" and business was booming.

It is believed that Emanuel Dubbs was part of various renegade-type activities including a time when he rode in a posse that shared the common goal of catching a horse-thief ring. He had various encounters with the Indians and he was believed to have been at the Second Battle of Adobe Walls in 1874.

In 1879, Emanuel Dubbs was elected as a judge but he really didn't show promise as a fair judge. He lacked the experience and the knowledge about legal matters. In 1896, Dubbs became a Disciples of Christ Minister and in 1909, he became the author of the book Pioneer Days in the Southwest. Historians would be able to safely assume that Emanuel Dubbs lived a full life as a true jack-of-all-trades.
