I have an old paper written in 1944 of an interview with a cowboy, John F. Schrader. In it he states that a large cattle ranch was owned by a "Dad Folley" (which was Benjamin Folley) & carried the "101 Brand." Ben Folley lived his life in Motley & Hall Cos, TX where he was a rancher & was born in Limestone Co, TX. Does anyone know where I might learn more about this ranch or Ben in NM? He also mentions that a ranch on the north side of the Canadian River was owned by Hank Crisswell & one at the head of Palo Dura Canyon owned by Charley Moore. Thanks for any info.
