Can you imagine how surprised and thrilled I was to discover I had a real live cowboy in my family tree–and he was famous as well! Like so many children of the 1950’s, I grew up immersed in Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, the Lone Ranger, and Buffalo Bill. Now I had my own cowboy! “Texas Jack” was born John Baker Omohundro and is my second cousin 3 x removed, as you can see in the relationship chart below.
