Theodore had a "farm" in Kansas two miles east of Hunnewell right on the state line adjacent to his lease in the Outlet. He also had a cabin on the Chikaskia River just a bit north of present day Blackwell, OK.

What little information I've been able to glean about the Cherokee Strip Livestock Association and his ranch is on a web page at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~billie0w/hr.htm . I just added an article from the Fort Worth Gazette from Sept. 1891 to the page. It's a little different story than others that I have read.

Joshua Theodore Horsley was a member of the Cherokee Strip Livestock Association between about 1880 and 1890. The land he leased was about 35 square mile of present day Kay County Oklahoma. 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.
