Irish-born James Kirker was born in 1793 in Killead, County Antrim, in the north of Ireland. He became notorious as a pirate, mercenary, soldier, merchant, mountain man, and infamous apache scalp hunter for the Mexicans.
He left for New York City, at the age of 16 to avoid conscription in the Royal Navy. In an ironic twist, he became a "legal" American privateer to raid British ships off the East Coast of the United States in the War of 1812. In 1824, he followed the Santa Fe Trail to New Mexico and spent winters during the next decade trapping and trading beaver pelts in the southern Rocky Mountains.
