Mr. Add Range Boss
"Add was his name", that's all just"Add". He rode the same Goodnight Loving Trail, that
Bose Ikard road. Mr. Add was know all over the Pecos and New Mexico. He was
respected as a Range Boss. There wasn't any earmark or brand that Add couldn't read.
Addison Jones (1845-1926) was a man honored by song and poetry. He was an expert
rider, roper and all-round cowboy.
He was an intriguing character who performed with ``real professionalism and bravado''
for decades when most cowboys quit after a few years.
There are several eyewitness accounts of "Old Add's'' remarkable ability to pull down
a horse running at a full gallop. With a rope tied hard and fast around his hips, he
would lasso the animal moving at a speed of 30 or 35 mph and pull it down.
THIS IS A PART OF THE STORY OF AFRICAN IN THE OLD WEST
If we think of the AfricanCowboy in isolation as a product of slavery with no past
history and neglect to look back to a time on the continent of Africa when Black
Men and Women created the first civilization and built empires. then we would see
the young AfricanCowboys and Women of the Old West were just continuing the
traditions of their ancestors back on the continent, where they were some of the
best horse men and cattle breeders bar non. For more information on other Black Cowboys check out "the Adventures of the
Negro Cowboys", By Philip Duram and Everett L.Jones
and "The Black West", By William Loren Katz
