Small World! My Great-great grandmother was the sister to the Coggin Brothers. They were big time free range ranchers and also established The Coggin Bank which was in the 5 story building at the corner of Lee and Center. Their nephew (my great-granddad) got his start in ranching in the same area the Coggin's ran cattle on Homecreek were my ranch is today. So my user name is Homecreek
