I am trying to verify if my aunt, Bernice Ely, was ever a stunt and bronc rider for the 101 Wild West Show. The time period would have been in the middle twenties. She also was a double and stunt rider in silent movies. She was b.1906 in Bakersfield CA & died on her horse ranch, in Bakersfield, in 1997.
MY FATHER WAS A COWBOY IN 1911
I am looking for any info on my grandfather. He was known as Deadwood Slim and Wiley. He was a bronc buster until he got hurt, then he clowned.
I AM TRYING TO FIND OUT WHEN MY FATHER, GLEN,(WILDY OR DEADWOOD SLIM) EBERHART RODE FOR THE SHOW. I THINK IT WAS BETWEEN 1920-1924. IF
ANYONE HAS A RECORD OF THE COWBOYS DURING THAT TIME AND FINDS HIS NAME, LET ME KNOW. THANKS

My Dad was a "Front Man", a cook, member of the cowboy band, and a ticket salesman in the 101 Wild West Show from about 1906-1912. I inherited about 50 photos of that experience which took place when Dad was in his 20's. He also was part of the Haegnbach-Wallace Circus, where he played the steam calliope. I also have photos of that experience. His name was Carey Forrest Elton, but he hated that name so show people called him "Bill". I can share some of the photos as attachments for anyone interested.
I just saw your message on the Kay Co. OK site that you had information about the 101 Ranch. This is a long shot but any help you could give me would be so much appreciated. My Grandmother's brother went to work on the 101 Ranch around 1910. He wrote a note home and wanted his family to come there and his brother in law to work with him. I still have the postcard but you can't see any date. They never heard from him again. It just broke their hearts because they knew something must have happened to him. They were a very close family.
Some time later a lawyer that my Grandmother worked for sent a letter to the ranch inquiring about him. The answer back was that he could have been killed in a ranching accident, but no one knew his name. His name was Earl Evans.
Would there be any kind of records, newspapers, etc. from the 101 ranch that I could search? Cemetery records or anything. What was the closest town to the ranch?
Thank you for any help you can give me.
