Emily Jane Estes was the widow of William Porter "Port" Stockton who was killed by a posse outside his home in northern New Mexico. Emily Jane was injured in the shoot-out by wood splinters when her rifle stock was struck by a bullet. In 1882 (1881), Emily Jane married a man named Joel Estes and resided in Animas City. Joel was the son of the Joel Estes, Sr., who founded Estes Park. Emily Jane was a well respected resident of Animas City. She was the sister-in-law and first cousin of Isaac "Ike" Stockton who is buried in the cemetery. There is no headstone for Mrs. Estes, but there is an empty headstone base near Isaac Stockton that might be marking her grave.

Emily Jane (Cowan) Stockton Estes was the wife and first cousin of William Porter "Port" Stockton. Port was shot and killed on his front porch in Flora Vista, 6 miles east of Farmington, San Juan County, New Mexico, Jan 1881. It has been said Port was cleaning his pipe and was unarmed when killed by Tom Nance. Emily came out of the cabin with a gun to give to Port, and was shot in the gun and was hit in the hand/arm. A grave site for Port has not been found and most likely he was buried in the location were he was killed in Flora Vista, San Juan County, NM.
Afer the death of Port, Emily married Joel Woodson Estes, Jr., and had one known son, Cleveland "Cleve" Estes, who may have died in Utah. He had a missing eye.

Port is the brother of Isaac Thomas "Ike" Stockton, who married the half-sister of Emily, Amanda "Ellen" Robinson (Same mother, different father). After the death of Ike, Ellen married her lawyer, Nathaniel Colbert Coldwell and moved to Fresno, CA, where Coldwell became a Judge. Their son, Colbert Coldwell became the founder of Coldwell Banker, which was later sold to Sears.

Port worked in Ike's saloon, in Lincoln Town, Lincoln, New Mexico. Ike was the owner of Ike's Saloon located in the right portion of the Jose Montano Store, now a historal musuem. During the 1878, Sheriff William Brady's killing by the Regulators, including Billy the Kid, Ike gave the dying deputy George Hindman a drink of water from his saloon. Hindman was shot a second time by the Regulators and fell dead. Soon, after 1878, the Stockton families moved north, where both brothers were killed 3 years later.
