Richard O. Scatterday is my great-grandfather on my mother's side. I was wondering if anyone had additional information about him. He died in the late 1950's (when my mom, Diane, was quite young) and she doesn't remember him very well. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help!

BERT SALE -- CALGARY STAMPEDE -- GOLDIE SINCLAIR
I know my Grandfather Bert Sale was in the Wild West Show 101, but does anyone know if this show went to the Calgary Stampede in 1912 in September. Goldie Sinclair, and lots of trick riders and performers were there. My grandfather was a bronc buster with Bert Bremmner, I know these guys were from Wisc., does anyone know anything. There is lots of names in Calgary Archives regarding some of the people who worked with the 101. ... Thanks.

Bert Shaw was my great uncle, Jesse Bernard Shaw. He used to tell us that he had been a cowboy on the 101 Ranch. We didn't know that it had a Wild West Show. (He was a very taciturn man and didn't talk much) What was his job there? Thank you.
I am searching for any information on David Sinclair, a 101 Ranch employee in 1913. In the Ponca City Courrier his name is in a birth announcement as the father of a little girl, born April 2, 1913.The article stated that he and his wife resided at the 101 Ranch. He is my grandfather. I know nothing about him...
Please send any information on Goldie St. Clair, who was a bronco rider in the 101 Ranch Wild West Show. I am interested in the years 1912-1914. I understand that her real name was Irene Wooden. She may be my grandmother...
My Grandfather William Lewis Sullivan worked at the 101 probably taking care of horses, He was probably very young and went by the name of Will. My father said that my Grandfather was there the same time Tom Micks was there.
Hello, I'm helping my 85 year old mother with her genealogy project which she has been working on since the early 60's. One ancester which has eluded her was John Shepler, her great grandfather, who had a son, Charles V. Shepler. We know a little more about Charles Shepler than we do his father John. We understand that Charles Shepler went to live with an uncle on the Cherokee Strip in 1875 and lived there several years. He wrote several books on "branding". I noticed his name on the Cherokee Strip Cowpunchers Assoc. roster. Would you have any information on him at all. We are trying to find out who he lived with back then or any information on him would be of help.

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!
In reviewing the records on the web for the 1925 members of the 101 Wild West Show we noticed an R. Smith listed. We have family history that a relative that went by two names, Robert Alonzo Smith and/or Jack Darlington was in the 101 Wild West Show after he left P.T. Barnum's circus. We were hoping that this would be the same person. The web site said that you have job Category and Title information of each person available, and we were hoping that R. Smith is our missing Robert Alonzo Smith. Any information you can give would be appreciated.
Thank you very much.
In the Spring of 1994,I was asked to be part of a "production team" for the Pawnee Bill Wild West Show. As a result, I met the Tom Ward Family from Gutherie and Tom's mother, (Alice?) Ward...who was/is the daughter of Sonny Shultz. My gosh..what a trick-roper on horseback she was...and goodlooking...whoa! still in her 80's! One day during a rehersal break, she opened up to me a vast history of her dad showing me original newspaper clippings with pictures of both (him) and her while in the last years with the 101 Ranch shows. One of my prized possessions is our group photo (for that season) with various autographs of the cowboys, cowgirls and Indians, but the one I really prize more than them all is Mother Schultz.
You see...unfortunately, it took years for me to understand just who she really was and her contribution to Oklahoma and 101 Ranch history.
My loss that I never followed-up our friendship with a call or card
>my grandparents, ella jackson who married Louis Jefferson Slack, aka Pickens met in New York and married while in the 101 Ranch in St. Louis I do belive. My father was born in 1910 during their time with the ranch. Supposedly he had an Indian name "Sunshine Boy" due to his blonde hair. I have an original photo of the ranch dated 1910 and have had it researched. I am unfamiliar with the computer and this site, i found my grandmother listed as Mrs Leu Slack and got lost. I hope to research and hope to connect with someone. much stories to tell from the 101 ranch and the times spent in New York after my grandparents retired
there was a woman named lou with a monkey who stayed at my grandparents house when the ranch played madison square garens.......til i master the computer and this site I hope someone gets this message
Milas STEWART, Truck Farmer, 101 Ranch
My grandfather, Milas STEWART, was a truck farmer on land that previously was a part of the 101 Ranch. He sold watermelons and cucumbers through the Truck Farmers Association and took his produce to Marland to the Train Depot for shipping out.
I am looking for an article written in 1938 about the first families who were given a piece of land from the 101 Ranch to farm. My grandfather, Milas Stewart was one of these men. I have seen the article and it is quite lengthy. It shows a picture of Milas and has an interview with him as well as a few of the other families. The other family names may have been Cook and Jeschke. I thought this was in a Ponca City newspaper, but I am not sure.
Would appreciate any info or leads to this newspaper article.

I have 5 (2x2-3/4") stamps depicting J. G. Miller and 4 cow girls as advertisement for the Real Wild West Show that performed at the 1915 San Francisco Exposition. The names Vicki and Hillary appear on the glassine containing the stamps. Are these common? Any information relating to these stamps would be appreciated.
Seeking information about Mose Smith RE: 101 Wild West Greetings! I am doing research about my great-great uncle, Mose Smith, who was a tattooed man with a number of shows. I found out from the Circus World Museum that he toured with the 101 Wild West Show in 1925. I saw on your site that he is listed in the roster for that year. I would be incredibly grateful for any information you could provide about him. Once my project is complete, I will share it with anyone who wants it.
