"Many years ago, or in 1857" said Allin Trimble a few years before his death, "I had started down to Asa Yocum’s and after leaving Trimble Creek and getting out on what was once known as Wolf Penridge near the head of Long Bottom Creek, one prong of which heads at Peel, Ark., I saw two wolves killing a two year old steer and I galloped up and frightened the wolves away. The steer belonged to Asa Yocum and it was almost dead. I rode on to Yocum’s and informed him of it and we went back and found the steer was dead and we saved its hide. The wolves had not come back to it while I was gone.
