Chino Valley pioneer is topic of Thursday TV interview

Phoenix resident Loree Rees Baker will be a feature of AZ TV Channel 7's "Morning Scramble" on Thursday, Feb. 14, when she talks about her great grandmother Hannah Postle Rees, a pioneer in the Chino Valley/Del Rio Springs area, which was proclaimed Arizona's first Territorial capital.

The show airs at 8:30 a.m.

Hannah was the wife of Robert Postle, who came to Chino Valley and began ranching near the site where Fort Whipple was first established before it was moved to Prescott in 1864. Postle farmed and ranched the abandoned military establishment, according to a book, "Echoes of the Past - Tales of Old Yavapai County," published decades ago by the Yavapai Cow Belles.

Postle died in 1871, and Hannah lived the required time on their ranch, Casa Del Rio, until she could get the title in her own name. Historians say she was one of the first women to successfully homestead land in Yavapai County and have a deed issued in her name.

Hannah later married Samuel Rees, and Loree is a descendant of her great grandmother's second marriage in which she had three sons.
