Frank Garst Sr., was one of the early day cattlemen and ranchers of Comanche county. The Garst ranch was primarily located on what is now the Ray Bennett farm southeast of Buttermilk. Frank and his cowboys drove many herds of cattle from Texas and New Mexico up the Chisholm Trail to Dodge City, Abilene and Fort Supply and some to the ranch. One of his cowboys was a former neighbor in Lincoln county, New Mexico -- Andy C. McDonold, who in the early days moved with his family to southern Comanche county. Andy helped drive five herds of cattle of from 3,000 to 5,000 head each time for Mr. Garst and Bud McDonold, now of Augusta, Kansas, made two trips with his father when a lad of 14.
