Ojo Ynez, a spring, and watering place on the old road from Janos, Chihuahua to the Santa Rita copper mines was located in the valley of the Burro Cienega two miles up stream from where the road crossed the stream just northeast of Soldiers Farewell Hill. It was subsequently a watering place on Cooke's Wagon Road and the route of the San Antonio-San Diego Mail Line, 10 miles southwest of Ojo de Vaca (Cow Spring) and 2 miles northeast of the later Soldier's Farewell Stage Station on the route of the Butterfield Overland Mail.
