After Fort Lewis, Colorado, was officially abandoned in 1891, all identifiable military personnel were transferred from its cemetery to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. In 1889, James H. Voorhees was buried in the cemetery -- to be called the Pagosa Springs Cemetery, after the transfer of military remains was made. The Pagosa Springs Cemetery is at South 10th and Navajo Streets.
