Sir,
I met Kenneth and his wife (can't remember here name) in Blackfoot in 1981. His wife was a distant cousin of my fellow worker and we went to Kenneth's house east of Blackfoot and helped to brand his cattle when we were working in the area. We stayed for dinner and visited. He told me about a trip he had just made to show his art in San Francisco. He had a picture of an Indian Maiden with an arrow through her head on his wall that he had painted whose eyes appeared to follow you around the room. At the end of the evening he brought out some of his painted rocks and gave them to us for helping him. I have a river rock with an Indian Chieftian painted on it. As the other person said he had an address label varnished into the back that showed his name and address. He had corrected the P.O. Box to 236 from 226. The label says Painted by Krazy Horse, Kenneth Cosgrove, Box 236, Blackfoot, Idaho 83221. He told me that he was a grandson of the real Crazy Horse. Not sure if that were true, but he was a real nice fellow. I never saw him again after that and my friend has since died of Cancer. There is a Kenneth R. Cosgrove (age 92) with a wife Emma Jean Cosgrove (Age 85) living in Blackfoot now. Maybe they are related or it might be them. Unless he held his age real well he wouldn't be 92. He looked at the most about 20 years my senior at the time I met him and I am 60 now. He should only be about 80 something, but maybe that is him. I can't pull anything up on the phone book and I am several hundred miles away. I love the rock that he gave me and it is strange that I was just looking for information on him too.
