Birth: Apr. 17, 1847
Oklahoma, USA
Death: Apr. 21, 1899

"George Beecher Perryman, a son of Lewis Perryman and Ellen Winslett, his wife, was born at Big Springtown on April 17, 1847. He was briefly educated at Tullahassee Mission but at eighteen began farming and stock raising, which business he continued during his life. He never engaged in politics nor did he render any military service in the Civil War. He married Rachel Alexander in 1868.

George B. Perryman was an astute business man and lived and maintained the base of his operations at Tulsa where he enjoyed a most ornate and comfortable home. Like the cattle men of the Territory at that time, he ran a store which was in fact a trading post because he exchanged his merchandise for cattle. Money was a rare commodity among the Indians during those years and calved became the medium of exchange at the store of George B. Perryman. As a consequence, his herd assumed proportions and during the grazing season, occupied his vast range along the Arkansas valley south and east of Tulsa. He became the Indian cattle king of the Creek Nation. In addition to his grazing lands, he had, at that time, 1000 acres of farm land under cultivation upon which corn was raised to provision his winter stock."

my great great uncle, the Indian cattle king of the Creek Nation. He loved ranching, children, family and helping his fellow man. I hope he's God's best cowboy in Heaven!
