I am asking about my grandmother and aunt that use to work at the 101 Ranch. My grandmother, Della Bounds, was a trick rider. My Aunt, Lizzie Bounds, was a sharp shooter and was known to use a double barreled shot gun. If you have any information for me, I would greatly appreciate it. You see, I never met them, but have always wished I could have. From the stories I've been told, they were quite amazing.. Thank you.
My great=grandpa Jessie Bascom Barnes worked at the 101 Ranch in its early days (pre-1800?). Does anyone have any information on him to share?
I am looking for information on Edgar and Tillie Bowman who worked for the 101 Wild West Show. Edgar is my grandfather's first cousin. I met Edgar's two sisters back in the 1970's while doing some family research. They mentioned that Edgar and Tillie had been in rodeos but did not mention how famous they were. I was writing for True West magazine at the time and would have enjoyed doing a story on this great couple. any information you can give me or name any books that mention them would be greatly appreciated.
Dad says that Grandma was born on the 101 Ranch and that her dad worked there. His name was Asa Brown. Grandma was born on July 1, 1914. If you have any info or verification I would love to get it.
My mother has information stating her father came from the 101 Ranch. His name was Hubert Byron Brown. Her mother married him in May of 1932/33? in Saskatchewan Canada. He had a sister named Pearl and a brother named Ralph. Unfortunately that is all the information we have. Now we were always under the assumption that he or his family owned the ranch but the more I look into this, I see that does not appear to be true. If you have any information that would help us I would greatly appreciate it.

My name is Melissa W. Ragan, and I am the fourth cousin of the Miller brothers of the famous 101 Ranch and Wild West Show. I am looking for information on Bessie Blackwell(born Betty Herberg 1896 in Ruthton, MN).Presently I am looking for anyone who knew or knows anything about Bessie, Marshall or Louis Blackwell; Dal, Tinnie, Ernest, Floyd or C.J. Fisher; Wanda Russell; Vernon or Florence Roberson; the Ponca No Ears; Gladys Shane or George and Joe Miller.

101 trick riders- Silver Tip Baker / Mabel Baker I was wondering where I could find more information about these two people that I have listed in the subject line. They are my Great Grandfather and Grandmother. I have been looking for a few years now for their name listed with the 101 Ranch. To my surprise it is listed in the area 1925 101 Wild West Show Members. Could you PLEASE lead me in the right direction to find more information about these two great people. I would like to find a lot of information and make some kind of book for my Dad for Christmas. They have a son that lives in California and my Dad went to visit him a couple of years ago. Please HELP me in anyway possible. Thanks for your help!
A relative, Clair Belcher ( wife of Bob Belcher), was a cowgirl with the 101 Ranch Wild West Show in the late 1920's and the 1930's. Clair divorced Bob Belcher and married Jack Thompson ( Red Thompson).After Red Thompson died in 1949, Clair married Frank Lohre. Clair, Bob Belcher, Jack Thompson, and Frank Lohre were all part of the Wild West Show. I am looking for information on Clair for a family history that I am putting together. Also information for places I might find information besides the Cowgirl Museum in Fort Worth.
My father joined the Miller Brothers show as a kid (a runaway) when he was 13 1924, he was born 8-11-1911 and died in 1984 at the age of 73. We have a few letters that he sent home to my grandmother written on Miller Brothers stationary mailed in Miller Brothers envelopes. He mentioned in one of the letters that he was getting paid extra by some Russian Cossaks to take care of their tack. He left the show after about a year or two and joined a circus. I just found your site and looked up the rosters but did not find him listed. His name was Dallas Melvin Brasel. He never told us if he used an alias or not. He was raised on a farm in Michigan and could ride and learned rope tricks while in the show. He always referred to the show as the Miller Brothers 101st. I have enjoyed reading about the Miller Brothers and I thank you for all your work.

My grandfather, Charles Anison Bohannon, was a lariet expert for the 101 Wild West Show during the year that Buffalo Bill Cody toured with the show. I am looking for any information confirming this family legend. I believe that he was originally hired as a 20 mule team driver. He may have been hired between 1914 and 1920. He also had the nickname of Wild Bill, although our family does not know why. I would greatly appreciate any information regarding my grandfather.
