Settlers' Stories Gene Lowery ZDLTK494022754557X
As part of the Flint Hills Discovery Center we are producing an oral-history exhibit called Settlers' Stories, in which visitors can hear the stories of settlers taken from primary-source documents, letters they wrote, diary entries, etc., from a range of time between the 1850s to the 1930s.
Gene Lowery was an African-American cowboy in the early 20th century. Following the Civil War, he moved out to the Flint Hills with his family from Ohio. The narrative is in the form of a story being told about Gene Lowery by a friend of his, perhaps an African-American man between 40 and 50 years old.

YesGene Lowery was an African-American cowboy in the early 20th century. Following the Civil War, he moved out to the Flint Hills with his family from Ohio. The narrative is in the form of a story being told about Gene Lowery by a friend of his, perhaps an African-American man between 40 and 50 years old.
Gene Lowery handled more cattle in the past 25 years than any other one man in the state of Kansas, and he has accounted for every hoof. He came out here with his family from Ohio following the Civil War. They were part of a small settlement of former slaves on Spring Creek, near Reece. He worked on ranches in the Eureka and Rosalia area.
I remember his bronc ride in the Cassoday Pasture in about 1907. That horse was a wild one, jumping completely over one buggy and going down in a heap outside the arena. Gene stepped out of the saddle as the horse went down, but stepped right back on as the bronc got up, riding the rest of the buck out of him. It was a hell of a ride, and he should have won, but one of the judges goose-egged him. Frank Cannon always figured Gene’s color had a lot to do with the score. When Gene died, the cattlemen paid for the funeral, the first ever to be held in the Presbyterian Church in Reece. Contrary to what some people expected, lightning didn’t strike the church.
