101 Ranch boot jack Named for its cattle brand, the 101 ranch was established by Col. George Washington Miller in 1879. It straddled the Kansas/Oklahoma state line and was one of the great ranches of the West. It was best known for hiring black cowboys. Among them: rodeo great Bill Pickett; Henry Clay, the cowboy who taught Will Rogers roping tricks; George Hooker, a trick rider; and Lon Sealey, an expert bull-dogger.
