I would appreciate any information available regarding my great-uncle, Ambrose "Nowata Slim" Richardson.
I have always been told by my grandmother that her grandfather, James Marion Rodgers, worked on the 101 in the late 19th and/or early 20th century and was nicknamed the Cherokee Kid. Are there records of this?
WE KNOW MR. ROSEBERRY WORKED AT THE 101 RANCH IN 1921. HE APPEARED IN A GROUP PICTURE OF THE ARENA IN 1921.

Panoramic picture of members from 1928 I was at a restraunt called "The Prairie House" in Roanoake Texas and they have this great panoramic picture from 1928 of the members of this show. My kids thought it was neat and I told them I would do an internet search to find out more and I ran across you guys. When I saw there were family members inquiring here I thought you may want to know about it. There may be lots of these picture, but just in case. So if any of you are near the Fort Worth area they might want to drive there to see it. This may mean a lot to someone.
Rube & Curley Roberts
Interested in any information regarding Rube and Curley Roberts, cowboys of the 101 Ranch. Rube was my great-uncle, not exactly sure about Curley's relation but there was one.
I have been reseaching the Rhoades family tree. We had an grandfather that worked at the 101 Ranch. His name was Samuel W. Rhoades. I have no other information at this time except he was born June 20,1872, married to Cassie McCombs February 28, 1892 and died in Eddy Grant Oklahoma. I would like to know more about the 101 Ranch and an address, news letter, etc

My Mother, then Marcia Ralls is looking for info on her grandfather, Randolph Settle. He was a cowboy on the Flying V during the 30's and 40's I believe. My mother, her brother Randy and her parents, Carroll and Nadean Ralls lived on the ranch during the depression for several years. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
I am searching for any information on my grandfather. I was told that he and two of his brothers worked at the 101 Ranch. Probably sometime in the twenties.
Any information on a George (Janson) Rogers, James Rogers or a Buck (probably a nickname) Rogers or information on how I might get a list of participants in any of the Wild West shows would be very much appreciated.
Still looking for information on a ranch cowboy true name Haskell Rosebrough A.K.A. One Arm Slim who was a performer in the Wild West Show, post-war and possibly also pre-war. Haskell lost his arm in a cotton ginning machine when he was 12 years old, but interestingly enough, Slim lost his in a roping accident on the ranch (yes, they were both the same man). It appears that they were never ones to let the truth interfere with a good story. Slim carried a 92 Winchester rifle special ordered from Winchester with a carbine style buttstock by an earlier show performer whose initials were "JPW" or possibly "JRW", and are stamped on the gun. Any information about Slim or who "JPW" or "JRW" was would be appreciated. The rifle was made in 1908 and bears serial number 473259.
Some time ago, I had contacted someone from the 101 Ranch Old Timer's
Association hoping to find information on my great,great aunt Janie Williams Reed. All I have been able to dig up from family history are bits of information from my great,great uncle Joe's eulogy that made reference to his wife's
involvement with both Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show, and the 101
Ranch Shows prior to their marriage. Both Joe and "Janie" are now dead, and their daughter, an only child, would be 92 years old now if she is not deceased. Nobody in the family seems to know where she is. I lost the address I had been
given to forward information that I have on the family. Now that I have
copies-in-hand of great-great uncle Joe's eulogy, I would like to know where to send it. I would love to find copies of photos of Bronco Jane in her heyday, if any still exist. Besides myself, there is only one other history lover in the family, and he
seems too busy to help. Anything you could help me with would be greatly

Hello I am searching for my husbands' ancestors. They are said to have live and worked at the Ranch before moving to CA. during the Dust Bowl. How can I find information on this? The names I am looking for are George and Nancy Russell, Charles (Charley) Russell and a few others. Charley is said to have worked, I believe in the General Store, I cannot remember sorry. But the family just keeps telling me they lived and worked their before the dust bowl. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
My grandfathr Jesse Reniche worked at the 101 Ranch sometime after 1907 probably under the name of J. Rice.
My grandmother saved a letter that her son had written to Joe Miller as well as miller's reply. The letter dated May 24, 1914 is addressed to Mr. Joe Miller and says: "Dear Sir: I saw by the St. Louis Republic that you were going to Mexico with a regiment of cowboys. I have spoken to Mr. Felix Carson and he said that I could go. I would rather go with you than anybody. I am 9 years old and have shot a rifle for a long time. I have killed jackrabbits 100 yards and I think that I could kill a Mexican 300 yards. I was up to the 101 Ranch two weeks before you left with your show. I was selling eagle feathers to the Indians. Trusting to hear from you soon stating when you will start. Yours very truly, E. M. Ross" The answer "En Route Boston, Mass May 24: Dear Sir: Yours of recent date received. Note what you say about going to Mexico with me. Hardly think we will have to go but should I do so, will be glad to consider your application. Thanking you for the offer, I am yours truly, J. C. Miller" (My father, Ed Ross, died in 1997 at age 92)
I was surprised to see my grandfather's name on the comprehensive roster of people associated with the 101 Ranch (what a great website you have!)
On the list it says "Jesse Reniche 1907 email query". But I couldn't find an archived email query containing his name. Do you have any idea what source links him to the 101 Ranch, or why he is on the comprehensive list?
What I know is that he was born in Hill City Kansas in 1888 or 1890, moved back to Kankakee, Illinois with his family in 1895, then ran away from home sometime after 1900, in his early teens. He also used the name Joe Rice and spent time in California before returning to Illinois at age 21. I do know that he was involved in harness racing as a young man. Would there have been harness racing on the 101?
I'd love to have more documentation linking my grandfather to this fascinating aspect of American History. I ran across your website during a routine genealogy "surf"... I'd never heard of the 101 ranch!
What a great story!
