Will Rogers
Oklahoma’s Favorite Son
An American Icon
A Cherokee Legend

"Will Rogers was an Oklahoma Indian, a cowboy, an entertainer, a movie and Broadway star, a writer, a speaker, a comedian, a philosopher and a world figure. Towering above all, Will Rogers was a good and decent man.

Born in 1879 in Indian Territory, on a sprawling frontier ranch near what later would become Oologah, Oklahoma, Will Rogers’ human nature, wisdom and humor were nurtured on the sprawling frontier governed by Cherokee Indians.

By the time of his birth, the pain of civil war and the rigors of frontier conquest had dissolved into the challenge of carving civilization onto the rich and bountiful plains. Clement Vann Rogers, Will’s father, was a Cherokee senator and a judge who helped write the Oklahoma Constitution. Successful in agriculture and banking, Clem founded a ranch fenced by rivers, spread across miles and home to thousands of Texas Longhorns.

Mary America Schrimsher Rogers, Will’s mother, descended from a Cherokee chief, easily mastered modern society, music, literature, etiquette and good humor. A mother of eight, Mary Rogers understood righteousness under God’s laws and performed countless charities." Text source: Text Source: (visit link)
