What got me interested in the Cherokee Strip Live Stock Association were family stories about how our family once owned a ranch the equal of the 101 Ranch of George W. Miller. With just a little research I found that Joshua Theodore Horsley was a member of the Cherokee Strip Live Stock Association and through them had a lease in the Outlet that was pretty near as big as the 101 Ranch. As near as I can figure his lease was about 35 square miles of present day Kay County. The land ran south from his farm in Kansas, two miles east of Hunnewell Kansas, south to the Chikaskia River then southeast down the river to a point near present day Blackwell Oklahoma then back north to the Kansas state line. There was a small jog East about half way up the East boundary.
