Miller Brothers 101 Ranch
Oklahoma Historical Society's website says this about the Miller Brothers 101 Ranch, "In 1881 George Washington Miller first used the 101 brand on his cattle, establishing what would become one of the most recognizable names in ranching and western entertainment.
A native of Kentucky, he migrated west after the Civil War, settling in Missouri and driving cattle from Texas to the railway heads in Kansas.
Miller later moved his ranch to land leased from the Quapaws, in present northeastern Oklahoma, and resided in Baxter Springs, Kansas. Then he relocated his family to Baxter Springs, Kansas, and his ranch to the Cherokee Outlet. Miller also cultivated a relationship with the Ponca, which were briefly displaced to the Quapaw Reservation. He suggested that the Ponca take land in the Outlet as their home."
