The Wandering Cowboy and the Sheepish Rancher’s Daughter

Lewis Allen Alderson and Emma Elizabeth Roberts Alderson were married in Sheridan, Wyoming on December 15, 1892. They began a small cattle ranch about a hundred miles north in Rosebud County, Montana. Over the years, along with their three sons, they purchased small ranches around them, building their land into the large ranch that is still in the Alderson family and still known as the “Bones Brothers Ranch.”

In 1915, oldest son Floyd left the ranch to become a stage coach driver in Yellowstone Park. ¬†With the advent of motion pictures in California, the young cowboy went to Hollywood and appeared in many silent westerns using the name “Wally Wales.” In 1936 he would change his stage name to Hal Taliaferro, the leading man in this adventure.

Hal Taliaferro had starred in many silent cowboy adventures, but when the studio he worked for shut down, he moved to other studios, usually as a henchman, posse rider, or other background cowboy with no significant face time. After thirty years of movie roles, he retired to the Bones Brothers Ranch with his two brothers, often spending his days painting landscapes of his magnificent Montana ranch lands.

In this adventure he is a wandering cowboy who gets into the middle of a fight between a man who leases land from the Federal Government to raise sheep on. Of course, the cattle men around this sheep ranch will try to do anything, including murder, to get the sheep rancher out of their cattle lands. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
