Heather, you have a good map at the museum to show the are as far as I know anyway. Very interesting to look at the ranch names in the area . I have talked to a local rancher several years ago and he said it was done all the time to have better grass for the Texas cattle. One instance I was told that a rancher had cattle here in the kansas-ok. area and the banker closed the doors and took the money.

The Cherokee Strip Livestock Association leased the Cherokee Outlet from the Cherokee up until the 1880s. They leased the entire 600,000 acres of land, grazing over 300,000 cattle there until the President of the US, Benjamin Harrison, created the Cherokee Commission to begin negotiations with the Cherokee for the purchase of the outlet so that it could be opened up to settlement.
